Rather pretty 1930s poster for Swanage, the Dorset holiday destination 'for sunshine and health'. It promises firm sands, safe bathing, golf, tennis, bowls, etc. The Southern Railway offered express trains and holiday fares, and through trains from the Midlands and the North.
The poster dates from 1931 and the artist was Leonard Patten.
An original sold for £1,000 at Christie's in London in 2001.
