In 1937, Christian Barman, London Transport’s Publicity Officer, asked Eric Ravilious to produce ideas for a poster promoting travel to Greenwich. Ravilious submitted two watercolours – one depicting the Observatory at Greenwich and the other, a nocturnal scene of Greenwich Pier. Although London Transport purchased both works, neither image was used due to the start of the Second World War. London Transport has granted permission for The Mainstone Press to publish each of these watercolours in a limited edition of 500 copies. Each edition is printed on 100% cotton, 320 gsm Somerset mould-made paper. The prints have an image size of 19.5 × 27 cms and are numbered by hand and presented in an acid-free mount measuring 30 × 40 cms. Each mounted print is available at:
£75.00 + £5 postage and packaging.
