The River Thames at Whitchurch, near Pangbourne, c1890

A view taken across the Mill Pond from the toll bridge in Whitchurch on Thames. Red brick cottages sit on the water's edge, next to the old mill, just out of shot to the left. The tower of St Mary's church can be seen in the centre of the image. This photo was produced by Photochrom and was used as a carriage print by the Great Western Railway in the late 1800s

GWR Publicity Poster, London, 1946

The poster was produced by the GWR just after the Second World War. It was designed by Frank Henry Mason. The huge dome of St Paul's Cathedral dominates the skyline. In the distance cranes can be seen, assisting in the rebuilding of London after the Blitz. The Thames in the foreground is busy with boats and barges, coming and going under Blackfriars Bridge

Damaged railway lamps, 1942 Featured Publicity Print

Damaged railway lamps, 1942

These rather forlorn looking lamps appeared in an article from the April 1942 edition of the GWR Magazine. The article looks at the daily toll of damaged and lost locomotive equipment and it called upon employees to make a positive contribution to this loss and damage. During the war there was a shortage of raw materials and unnecessary repairs or replacements took its toll on resources. For example, over 200 lamps a week were arriving at Swindon Works for repair. It was considered an employee's ?National Duty? to keep the nation's transport system running smoothly
