Description

Poster produced for Great Northern Railway (GNR) to promote rail travel to the Yorkshire Coast. The poster shows a fully-dresed walrus standing upright and man standing on the beach waving, with the words 'They cheered like anything to see such quanitites of sand' written beneath. The artist has written, above his signature, 'With acknowledgments and apologies to Sir John Tenniel'. Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) was a cartoonist for 'Punch' and illustrated Lewis Carroll's 'Alice' books. GNR was promoting its booklet 'Alice in Holidayland'. Artwork by Frank Henry Mason (1876-1985) who spent time at sea and painted marine and coastal subjects. Dimensions: 1016 mm x 1270.
