Description

The Great Western Railway (GWR) commissioned this poster in 1946 to promote rail travel to London. Showing views across the Thames to the Houses of Parliament from the Albert Embankment on the south bank of the river, it shows London life as normal, despite the damage recently inflicted by the blitz. Frank Henry Mason was educated at HMS Conway and spent time at sea. He painted marine and coastal subjects and was involved in engineering and shipbuilding.
