Kent - Buckle Summary

Title - Kent - Served by British Railways.
- Claude Henry Buckle RI., RSMA. (1905–1973).

- Buckle's wonderful oil painting of oast houses in springtime gives us the essence of rural Kent as it used to be. Oast houses were a common sight near the hop gardens all across Kent, for drying the hops which were then used for brewing beer. This version of the poster was produced for the North American market, as can be seen from the wording at the bottom.
