Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933 Featured Wales Image

Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933

Poster produced for the London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Snowdonia in Wales. In 1923 the LMS boasted in its booklet The Wonderland of Wales that Snowdon and the Welsh Highlands are synonymous with scenery of ravishing beauty. Ancient story, sweet murmurs of mountain streams and soul stirring music of peasant people add to the delights of this romantic region as a holiday ground.
Artwork by Charles H Baker, who was born in Ilminster and educated at Berkhamstead School. He was Head of Research at the Huntington Library, California. He painted landscapes in oil and designed posters for LMS
