Title:  England: Bournemouth On The South Coast
Year:  c. 1920’s~30’s
Artist:  J. Dixon Scott
Size (cm): 50.8 x 76.2
Country of origin: U.K.

A Dixon Scott photo produced as a tourism poster for the Travel Association and Bournemouth Corporation. Dixon Scott’s work forms part of the collection in the UK National Archives.

These images were used extensively by the Travel Association in overseas promotional campaigns up until the late 1940’s. Not all the resulting posters were produced to such a high standard as this example, which I believe is an example of photograuve printing. Although it is undated, the high quality of the print, the font used in the lettering and absence of any Travel Association logo suggest this poster dates from the 1930’s pre-war period.

Dixon Scott captured everyday scenes that might be considered trivial but are rich in period detail. With many of the poster in this series, some close to 100 years old, one can not only touch the past, but see it too, they are quite remarkable.

The poster is in generally good condition. One obvious crease is visible below the upper horizontal edge. Along the edges are small creases and nicks consistent with a poster this age. These are minor issues and would disappear if framed under a mount.
