'Saving of Daylight - Do not Wait for the Daylight Bill to Become Law but Secure Long Evenings for the Holidays by Visiting the West Country.' Poster produced for the London & South Western Railway (LSWR) to promote rail services to the West Country, where the sun sets about 20 minutes later than in London. The Daylight Bill of 1908 set the precedent for the twice-yearly changing of the clocks. Artwork by an unknown artist.
