An original hand drawn artwork for a proposed Great Western Railway poster The Gateway to Cornwall. By RT Horley. The pencil/charcoal design features a dramatic view of the Royal Albert railway bridge, which spans the River Tamar in England between Devon and Cornwall. This unique survivor was recently rediscovered in a loft in west London, together with a collection of posters, ephemera, and drawings from the former Great Western Railway Publicity Office at Paddington.
