Description:

This genuine vintage poster, issued by the Great Western Railway in the 1920s, promotes the "Cornish Riviera," showcasing England's southwestern coastline.

Printed in the "Quad Royal" size format, the poster features a picturesque scene depicting the Vikings landing on St. Ives Beach. While the Viking portrayal may take artistic liberties, incorporating elements reminiscent of Wagner's opera Die Walk├╝re, the overall effect is visually stunning.

To ensure its enduring appeal, the poster has been mounted on linen, with some restored tears on the right side. This vintage piece stands as a testament to the allure of the Cornish Riviera during a bygone era.
