Original poster artwork in watercolours for Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset, painted by Peter Walbourne. This charming painting was published as a poster by British Railways (Western Region) in 1951. It 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. A second copy of the painting is held by the National Railway Museum. Not signed.
