Easter • London 1934

I found this super poster at a local auction. What was Easter like in London in 1934? Celebrate EVERYWHERE ... Parks and Open Spaces ... Woods and Riverside ... Country Towns ... It conjures up images of Victorian grandeur, pastoral leisure, or even Hyacinth Bucket of Keeping Up Appearances hosting a riverside picnic (or what she would call a "waterside supper with riparian entertainment") decked out in a pretentious, stodgy dress and hat!

This poster was created by Dora Batty who did many posters for London Transport in the 1920s and '30s.
