Poster produced for British Railways (BR) to advertise the company's services to industry. The poster shows locomotives arriving and departing at the ICI chemical works at Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees. Every year, ICI relied on British Railways to deliver nearly 2 million tons of coal and 150,000 tons of other commodities to its chemical works at Billingham. BR also transported three quarters of a million tons of fertilisers, cement, bulk liquids and other products despatched from the works. Artwork by Terence Cuneo, who studied at the Chelsea and Slade Art Schools. In addition to a long career designing railway posters, he also painted portraits (including royal portraits) and ceremonial and military subjects.
