Whitby Railway Posters

When  train travel was at its peak the railway companies commissioned some beautiful posters to publicise their services and here are just a few examples of  those which featured Whitby.
You can buy copies of  these posters and many more at very reasonable prices from The Science and Society Picture Library which produces superb prints for all the major national museums.

The building of Captain Cook's Ship, The Endeavour.

Robin Hood's Bay.

The railway north of Whitby ran very close to the sea, so this picture may be of the line near to Sandsend.

The east side and the old lifeboat station.

A dramatically styled harbour poster by Austin Cooper in around 1923.

The west cliff and the Spa Pavilion.
