Original poster produced for the Great Western Railway and London Midland and Scottish Railway, promoting rail travel to the city of Bristol, showing a view of the 17th century inn 'Ye Llandoger Trow', with the docks seen in the background. In his book, Treasure Island (1883), Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) used the inn as one of the haunts of the pirate, Long John Silver. This rare poster 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.
