Popular Calendar Title | Printed on high-quality, FSC certified paper | Full-color pages throughout | Includes all major and significant holidays

The consolidated railway lines of Great Britain, long relied upon by industry and commuters, increasingly catered to tourists as the 1930s came and went. Hard pressed by competition from buses and automobiles, yet determined to increase business, the railways set out to capture the imaginations of vacationers. Top-notch illustrators were hired to design posters advertising train travel to historic castles and charming rural settings, bustling cities and seaside resorts. Slogans encouraged riders to holiday in the Lake District, "Live in Kent and Be Content," and above all to "See Britain by Train." With stunning illustrations and typography, renowned artists and anonymous designers envisioned an ideal escape. Though often little is known about the artists today, their works now fascinate everyone from casual observers to studied collectors.

This calendar is perfect as décor in your home, kitchen, or office and easily helps to keep track of important dates, contacts, and other events at a glance. Each calendar month is easy to glance at and see what responsibilities you have coming up, so make sure you stay organized through the year! Personalization is easy with different colors for appointments and trips, add stickers or stickie notes for a quick reference, or create your own system of symbols and abbreviations.

More Info

England’s railways were once run by dozens of companies, but out of World War I came the Big Four, which for the first time divvied management of rail lines geographically. Each had lines fanning out from London to their designated region and tried to attract riders with posters advertising pastoral scenes, charming villages, or flashing views of the capital. New locomotives continued to impress, and trains became ever faster. But rail travel declined as the automobile prospered, and the prewar glamour eventually faded. Profits were few and only the Southern Railway invested, electrifying some of its commuter lines. By 1948 the railways were nationalized.
