London, GWR poster, 1940s Featured 19 May 2003 Print

London, GWR poster, 1940s

Poster produced for Great Western Railway (GWR) to promote train services to London. Although the style of the artwork would suggest a date in the 1940s, the area shown near Blackfriars Bridge was damaged during World War II. This damage is not shown in the poster. It is possible that the artist, in seeking to produce a promotional poster setting forth the capital in its best aspect, and in keeping with the spirit of optimism and the desire to move forward from the horror of war, chose not to depict the buildings as damaged. Artwork by Frank Henry Mason (1876-1965), who painted marine and coastal subjects and, in addition to designing railway posters, was also involved in engineering and shipbuilding

Black vine weevil, SEM Featured 19 May 2003 Print

Black vine weevil, SEM

Black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus), on a leaf, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This insect is a pest that attacks a wide range of plants, including the yew, rhododendron, azalea, laurel, juniper, grape, holly, strawberry and many other woody and herbaceous plants. O. sulcatus is parthenogenic, meaning that it reproduces without sexual fertilization. There are no male black vine weevils, and the adults are all flightless female black vine weevils. The adults feed on the foliage of the host plants, while the grubs feed on the roots, and cause even more damage than the adults. Magnification: x4 at 6x7cm size
