An original, vintage, British Railways travel poster promoting Somerset The Holiday County of Infinite Charms, painted by Sir Herbert Alker Tripp, c. 1950. Tripp had previously served as an Assistant Commissioner of the London Metropolitan Police from 1932 to 1947. This beautiful poster was found ripped in three places, but has been expertly restored and laid onto Japan paper (please note, the bottom right corner is folded back in the photograph rather than missing).
