With a respectful nod to the Southern Publicity Depart back in 1936 I am heading very South (well about 3 hours in a plane south) for 10 days or so for some rest and relaxation. There will therefore also be a break in posts on this blog, normal service will be resumed week commencing the 20th August.
The Photograph was originally taken in 1924 by Charles E Brown and shows a small boy carrying a suitcase on the platform at Waterloo station talking to the fireman of N15 King Arthur class 4-6-0 locomotive No 755 ‘The Red Knight’, as he leans from the cab.
This was in fact a black and white photograph that was coloured for reproduction in the poster.
I hope you are all enjoying the Summer so far and go Team GB! Speak again soon.
