1930s Seaside Prints by Dave Thompson

A frequent sight in British railway stations from the early 1920s, sharp & stylised posters advertised tourist hotspots accessible by rail, from the sunny climes of the Cornish coast all the way up to the remote Scottish Highlands, showing off the understated glamour of what's now become known as a 'staycation'. 

Artist Dave Thompson has captured the resurgence of the 'stay at home holiday' and taken inspiration from classic art deco railway posters to create these prints of iconic landmarks across the south coast, making a day trip to sunny Sussex as appealing as a weekend in Saint-Tropez (almost).
