The railway poster

Post by Deepol » Tue Apr 18, 2017 12:53 pm

The poster in the pre digital age was the means for the railway companies to advertise their services, achievements and also places served. There were some wonderful images produced some by well known artists. These are some from the collection, from cards and auction catalogues.
