Additional Information: Original color lithographic poster, This is an original vintage 1932 British Rail poster published by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) for travel to the popular resort of Redcar on the North Sea. Frank Newbould depicts a tranquil scene of an old salt teaching his grandson to fish from his rowing boat giving a nod to the town's history as a 14th century fishing village. Redcar, is a descriptive name describing the red color of its reed marsh, the name in part from the Viking word "kjar" for marshland. The area attracts many inland visitors on the LNER's routes from Leeds and northern neighbors in Scotland who enjoy the 8 miles of sandy beaches that Redcar has to offer.

This large-scale poster is in the desirable horizontal "Quad Royal" format. It is definitely a rare find and shows the breadth of Newbould's graphic work.
