This stunning poster was created in 1960 to advertise British Railways routes to Southend-on-Sea, as well as Westcliff-on-Sea, Leigh-on-Sea, Thorpe Bay, and Shoeburyness in Essex in England. 

The artwork from Frederick Griffin (1906-1976) depicts a summers day over the Southend seafront to emphasize the "High Sunshine - Low Rainfall" messaging of the advertisement. Frederick Griffin was well known for his commercial works for the likes of British Railways and other transport companies of the era. The poster was published by British Railways (Eastern Region) and printed in Great Britain by Jordison & Co Ltd.
