Well...what can you say about this?
I stumbled across this beautiful railway poster print, recently,
as I was researching one of the railway poster artists.
I'm not sure of the artist but I think it sums up Devon !
I also came across this, which is believed to be the original work
of artist Frank Newbould.
He must have spent some fine old times in Devon!
I suppose, being born in Bradford, what better way to
escape the place and become a railway poster artist!
Frank Newbould was born on 24th September 1887.
The son of a chemist, he studied at Bradford College of Art.
You can also find reproductions of many of his posters in the
London Transport Museum shop.
In 1942 Newbould joined the War Office, where he produced eleven posters,
including four for the ‘Your Britain, Fight for it Now’, in the tradition of ‘this England’,
the peacetime English scene, for which he had been famous with his travel posters.
