East Riding of Yorkshire Map – 1946 by Ernest Clegg – Reproduction
A wonderful piece commissioned to commemorate World War II and to mark the importance that agriculture, industry and the role that women played on the home front in securing that victory. The East Riding of Yorkshire included towns and cities such as Kingston Upon Hull, Beverley, Withernsea, Market Weighton, Pocklington, Howden, Bridlington and Great Driffield.
The map details towns, larger villages, rivers and the industrial and agricultural products produced within those areas. It gives special mention to the role of the Women’s Institute and the importance of British farms along with excerpts of Winston Churchill’s speeches.
This vibrant work brings to life part of our recent history and is a masterpiece of it’s kind. This classic piece would look stunning mounted (as illustrated above) and would form a centrepiece of any room. The map is printed on premium heavyweight 180 gsm paper and uses the finest quality inks that will not fade or smudge
