Poster produced for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to the Lincolnshire coastal resort town of Skegness. The poster shows a child pulling the Jolly Fisherman by his red scarf. The Jolly Fisherman poster is one of the most famous English holiday posters.

Tynemouth, LNER poster, 1926
