Notes

Ernest Coffin (1868–1944) was a British artist and illustrator. He produced this poster for the Great Western Railway (G.W.R.) as one of a pair: the present example showing London from Westminster to Paddington Station, the other from Admiralty Arch looking east to Tower Bridge. It was promotional material, which is why none of the buildings are labelled apart from their headquarters in Paddington Station.
