Skegness is so Bracing, LNER poster, 1933 Featured Lincolnshire Image

Skegness is so Bracing, LNER poster, 1933

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. It was first published in 1908 by the Great Northern Railway (GNR) which paid twelve pounds for it. Since then the Jolly Fisherman has been caricatured and re-drawn over and over again. It was an outstanding poster for its time, because most Victorian and Edwardian posters were restrained and factual. Artwork by Frank Newbould (1887-1951) after John Hassall (1868-1948), who first drew the character

The Skegness Cure, original artwork for GNR poster, 1911

Watercolour painting, the original artwork for a Great Northern Railway (GNR) poster entitled The Skegness Cure, produced by GNR to promote rail travel to Skegness, Lincolnshire. The man in the picture with a bandaged foot has become so invigorated by the bracing air of Skegness that he has sprung out of his wheeled chair and is pulling it along, with his attendant now seated in it, as he skips along the beach. Artwork by John Hassall (1868-1948), the first great railway poster artist. After twice failing to gain a commission at Sandhurst, he emigrated to Manitoba, Canada, but later returned to England, where he started his own art school called the New Art School and School of Poster Design
