National Railway Museum Newquay Railway Poster - Metal Wall Sign (2 Sizes)
Newquay Railway Poster from the Mid 20th Century. Cornwall is renowned for it's surfing beaches and slower pace of life. Newquay itself has a much more energetic vibe, situated on the North Coast of Cornwall, connected to the Atlantic Ocean, the home of Fistral beach, and the surfing culture which makes the town a vibrant hot spot for the cool bleached blond surfers and hipsters. It is of course also a holiday destination for families and anyone who loves Cornwall. Often regarded as the golden age of Train travel, these travel posters are familiar to generations of train travellers across the UK, most of these artworks encouraged families to explore the United Kingdom via train. Specially commissioned artists such as Ronald Lampitt, Norman Wilkinson and Frank Henry Mason produced beautiful British Rail Travel Posters for all of the major towns and cities across the UK. This one is for Newquay and it shows a young group trying their hand at surfing on a sunny day at the beach.. Perfect gift for a railway enthusiast or collector of vintage advertising. If you are the surfing type, why not put the sign up in your camper van ?
