Title - Turnberry Hotel - On The Ayrshire Coast - The Sunshine Corner of Scotland.
Location - Turnberry, Ayrshire, Scotland.
Artist - Claude Henry Buckle RI., RSMA. (1905–1973).
Description - A rare and fabulous poster. Buckle has produced a wonderful depiction of the main front of the hotel, complete with period vehicles. This view is much the same today. Golf has always been one of the main draws of the hotel, which was opened in 1906 as a luxury Station Hotel near the existing golf links and on a new railway line. The railway is long gone, but the hotel is now called "Trump Turnberry" and has undergone major refurbishment in recent years.
This poster will also be supplied with a DVD which contains an original film produced by the LMS's internal fim unit in the 1930s to advertise the hotel in it's prime, including arrival by train.
