actual image size: 32cm x 26cm


Poster produced by London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail services to Caernarvon Castle in Wales. The poster shows a view of the castle, which was built by Edward I (1239-1307), from across the Menai Straits. The castle was intended as a seat of power, a symbol of English dominance over the subdued Welsh. Artwork by Norman Wilkinson (1878-1971), who studied art at Portsmouth and Southsea Schools of Art. A famous marine painter, he designed posters for several railway companies and organised the Royal Academy series of posters for the London & Midlands Railway (LMR) in 1924.
