EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the summer of 1952, when British Railways (BR) sought to entice travelers to the picturesque coastal towns of Hastings and St Leonards in East Sussex. The poster, skillfully crafted by artist Alan Durman, transports us to a tranquil scene on the seafront. In this idyllic setting, we find a weathered fisherman engrossed in his craft - either making or mending a net. Seeking respite from the sun's rays, he finds solace in the shade while surrounded by an array of vibrant colors that characterize the lively seaside atmosphere. The artwork beautifully captures both the serenity and vibrancy of these coastal towns. Behind our diligent fisherman lies a stunning panorama: an expanse of sandy beaches stretching out towards crystal-clear waters that seem to merge seamlessly with an azure sky. It is as if time stands still for this dedicated artisan amidst such natural beauty. As we gaze upon this image, we are reminded of the timeless allure of coastal life - where hard work intertwines with moments of tranquility and reflection. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder that there is much more than meets the eye along Britain's coastlines; it beckons us to explore and discover hidden gems like Hastings and St Leonards. With its rich history and breathtaking scenery, it is no wonder why BR chose this artwork to promote rail travel to these charming destinations. This print from National Railway Museum encapsulates not only their promotional efforts but
