Description

Poster produced for London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Rhuddlan Castle, Denbighshirre, Wales. The castle was built in the 11th century and changed hands between Wales and England several times, but with the establishment of English rule in Wales it finally pased into the keeping of the Crown. It was ravaged by Parliamentarians in 1643. Artwork by Norman Wilkinson, who studied art at Portsmouth and Southsea Schools of Art. A famous marine painter, he designed posters for the London & North Western Railway (LNWR), the London & Midlands Railway (LMR) and Southern Railway (SR) and organised the Royal Academy series of posters for the LMR in 1924. Dimensions: 1016 mm x 635 mm.
