This volume will feature a journey from North Lincolnshire down to the outskirts of London. Three further regional books (plus a General Poster and Foreign Travel Book) to follow over the next 3 years to complete an eight-volume series. Volume 1 of this series about Scotland won the title “Scottish Non-fiction Book of the Year 2009”. Volume 2 covered Yorkshire and the North-East and Volume 3 covered the Midlands and Wales: both are critically acclaimed. They have all been written under licence from the National Museum of Science and Industry Trading Ltd and in collaboration with the National Railway Museum at York. This large format volume includes more than 320 Regional posters, many previously unpublished in books, from the National Collection and other sources. They span the years from the Victorian era to Modern times. Volume 4 sees the journey begin with industrial scenes as we visit Immingham and Scunthorpe. We then visit the cities of Lincoln, Cambridge, Ely and Norwich, before reaching the coast at Great Yarmouth. The Norfolk Broads, the Fens and the pretty villages of Suffolk await, before it is into Hertfordshire and Essex. Essex featured surprisingly often in railway advertising and a mixture of shipping and holiday posters is included, for an area that saw many day-trippers come from London.
