Country of origin: U.K.

"The Smile In Smiling Somerset"; a young woman embraces the holiday sun in Weston Super-Mare's Tropicana lido, famous for its iconic, art deco diving platform visible in the background. The lido opened in 1937 and became a significant attraction within the resort. Printed by British Rail Western Region, the poster dates from around 1955 and captures the youthful optimism of a seaside holiday in 1950's Britain.

The poster is in good condition. Some small paper loss is evident along the lower left vertical edge. This is only superficial damage as framing under a mount would hide the loss. This aside the poster is complete, free from folds and creases, with rich and deep colours.
