EDITORS COMMENTS This print takes us back in time to the golden era of British Railways, specifically between 1948 and 1965. The poster was skillfully created by renowned artist Ellis Silas as part of a campaign promoting train services to Filey, a charming coastal town nestled in the heart of North Yorkshire. The artwork beautifully captures the essence of this picturesque destination, showcasing its breathtaking coastline adorned with pristine sandy beaches and towering sea cliffs. As we gaze upon the image, our eyes are drawn towards an array of vibrant beach huts that dot the shoreline, adding a touch of nostalgia and charm to the scene. Filey's allure as a seaside getaway is undeniable; it beckons visitors with promises of tranquility and relaxation amidst its idyllic surroundings. This poster transports us to an era where train travel was not only practical but also synonymous with adventure and exploration. Preserved within the National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print serves as a reminder of Britain's rich railway heritage and its role in connecting people with beloved destinations like Filey. It encapsulates both artistic brilliance and historical significance while evoking feelings of wanderlust for those who yearn for simpler times spent by the coast.
