Poster produced for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to the coastal resort of Bamburgh, Northumberland. The poster shows a panoramic view of the area, with the beach and sea in the foreground and Bamburgh Castle in the background. Artwork by Tom Purvis (1888-1957), who rallied for the professionalisation 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.
