Description

Poster produced for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to Lincoln, Lincolnshire. The poster shows a view of Lincoln Cathedral towering over the rest of the city. Lincoln Cathedral was started in 1072 but the original building was destroyed by fire and much of what now soars above the city skyline dates from the 12th and 13th centuries. Artwork by Fred Taylor, who was commisioned in 1930 to design four ceiling paintings for the Underwriting Room at Lloyd's and murals for Reed's Lacquer Room. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and other London galleries and worked for the Empire Marketing Board, LNER, London Transport and several shipping companies. Dimensions: 1016 mm x 1270 mm.
