Vintage British Railway Posters


Posters from an exciting age of the 20th century when train travel was far from new but still opening up new horizons for many in Britain, before mass international plane travel and cheap foreign package holidays. Families without cars and TVs must have felt a sense of adventure and of wonderful discoveries beckoning, within a country that may be more familiar and taken for granted by its inhabitants now.

~~

The Swansea and Mumbles Railway in South Wales was the world's first passenger railway service: it carried fare-paying passengers on 25 March 1807 (the same day the British Parliament passed the Slave Trade Act 1807 which abolished the transportation of slaves from Africa).
