An historically important and previously unrecorded London & North Western Railway poster dating to the earliest period of British pictorial travel posters. The unsigned design, featuring a London to Liverpool Express passenger train, is possibly by Norman Wilkinson who pioneered this type of single image-based poster for the LNWR from 1905. Further dating information is provided by the reference to Frederick Harrison as general manager, a position he held from 1893-1908. Astonishing and unlike the majority of multi-image travel posters published in Britain at the time.
