Southen Crowstone was designed by Charles Pears in 1929. This poster features a sky of warm orange with yellow highlights which is reflected in the shallow water at the forefront of the image. The clarity of the reflection helps to demonstrate to the viewer the idyllic landscape which Southend offers, easily accessible from Southend station.
