‘Bluebell Time Kew Gardens’ by Frank Newbould, was published in 1922 for the Underground Electric Railways Company Ltd.
This lovely spring time poster encourages Londoners to use the parks and gardens in London throughout the year and incorporates a verse written by Jesse Pope:
‘In every wood a misty sheen Tassels the trees with tender green. Spring lures us forth from town, to wade Through bluebell drifts that paint the glade.
This poster sits well with another springtime artwork ‘Crocus Time by Herry Perry (1931).
