Come to Wales
Publicity Photographs from The Great Western Railway 1905–1940
This is a moving journey around Wales — as seen through the lenses of the Great Western Railway's publicity photographs during the first half of the twentieth century. See how the GWR enticed visitors to travel to Wales, portrayed as a sunny, idyllic holiday destination. These photographs are now of immense historic value as well as being beautiful and excellently composed. They show aspects of Welsh life now unrecognisable or lost forever.
