Description

Poster produced for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to the coastal resort of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire. The poster shows a woman and a young child seated in a rail compartment looking out the carriage window at the beach. Artwork by Tom Purvis (1888-1957), who rallied for the profesionalisation of commercial art. In 1930 he was one of the group of artists who founded the Society of Industrial Artists, which campaigned for improved standards of training for commercial artists in order to broaden their scope of employment. He became one of the first Royal Designers for Industry in 1936.
