EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the 1930s, when the Great Western Railway (GWR) adorned its stations with stunning posters like this one. The artwork, skillfully created by Alker Tripp, showcases the picturesque beauty of Devon, a county renowned for its charming churches, idyllic villages, and breathtaking sea coast resorts. As we gaze upon this vintage masterpiece, our imagination transports us to a simpler era where summer holidays were eagerly anticipated and cherished. The poster effortlessly captures the essence of leisurely days spent exploring quaint coastal towns or meandering through lush landscapes dotted with historic buildings. The vibrant colors and meticulous attention to detail bring life to every element depicted in this scene. From distant church spires piercing through rolling hills to sun-kissed beaches inviting relaxation and playfulness - each aspect is meticulously crafted to entice travelers towards their next adventure. Preserved within the National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print serves as a nostalgic reminder of an era when railway travel was not only practical but also an opportunity for discovery. It encapsulates the spirit of wanderlust that still resonates today among those who yearn for exploration beyond their everyday lives. Let your mind wander as you immerse yourself in this enchanting image – let it transport you on a journey through time and space; beckoning you towards Devon's hidden gems waiting to be discovered once more.
