An original British Railways poster from the Service to Industry series, painted by Norman Hepple. The image depicts a British Railways’ steam locomotive delivering materials to a shipyard, possibly in Tyneside as the poster was produced for the company’s North Eastern Region. It was recently rediscovered in a loft in west London, together with a collection of posters, ephemera, and drawings from the former British Railways Publicity Office at Paddington.
