A massive, original, two-part British Railways poster featuring a Britannia Class steam locomotive hauling a passenger train, designed by A N Wolstenholme, c. 1955. The poster came from the former British Railways (Western Region) Publicity Office at Paddington, and appears to be an unlettered proof or the remaining segments of an even larger hoardings-sized poster. The two parts have been professionally re-joined and backed on Japan paper. A remarkable and possibly unique survivor, not seen by us before.
