London and North East Railway (LNER) poster featuring Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
Originally produced to promote rail services to the North East Coast Exhibition, held in Newcastle-upon-Tyne between May and October in 1929.
The poster shows a male worker gesturing towards the buildings of the exhibition, which are seen beyond the newly opened famous Tyne Bridge.
Artist: Septimus Scott.
In 1929 Newcastle was the venue for a spectacle the like of which had never been seen in the region. During its six month life 4½ million visitors passed through the turnstiles, and when the pavilions were dismantled the area reverted to a public park, Exhibition Park at it is now. It remains in folk memory of Tyneside as one of the most enjoyable events in regional history.
