As the birthplace of the playwright William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Stratford-upon-Avon was promoted extensively in the 1920s. This poster was produced for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) and for the LMS Welcombe Hotel, described as "England's newest country house hotel."
<br>Artist Warwick Goble studied at Westminster School of Art and started out as a lithographer. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and other leading galleries, illustrated many books, and designed posters for the LMS and Great Western (GWR) railways.
Our poster is reproduced on heavy stock poster paper. 13" x 19"
