Essex Coast - Lander Summary

Title - Essex Coast.
- Reginald Montague Lander (1913-c1980).

- A simple image showing the main seaside beach destinations on the Essex coast - Southend, Clacton, Walton and Dovercourt. Each town has a photo of the seafront area, and is shown on the simplified map with the railway lines "From London".
The poster was likely designed to attract people travelling to the coast from London, but this poster was originally saved by a railwayman who worked at Shepley and Shelley station near Huddersfield during the 1950-60s. Why it was sent to Yorkshire for display is a mystery.
