East Coast Joys, No 6, LNER poster, 1931 Featured 12 May 2003 Print

East Coast Joys, No 6, LNER poster, 1931

Poster produced for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to the East Coast of England. This poster, entitled Sea Sports, was the last in a series of six posters illustrating the various pastimes that could be enjoyed on the east coast. The posters formed a continuous scene when placed next to each other, but each was designed so that it could also stand alone. 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
