The Skegness Cure, original artwork for GNR poster, 1911

Watercolour painting, the original artwork for a Great Northern Railway (GNR) poster entitled The Skegness Cure, produced by GNR to promote rail travel to Skegness, Lincolnshire.

Artwork by John Hassall (1868-1948), the first great railway poster artist. After twice failing to gain a commission at Sandhurst, he emigrated to Manitoba, Canada, but later returned to England, where he started his own art school called the New Art School and School of Poster Design
