Old Map of Yorkshire Produced by British Rail 1949 – Artist Estra Clark

 

Old Map of Yorkshire Description:
This reproduction Old Map of Yorkshire has it all. Created by York’s own pictorial cartographer artist  Estra Clark this piece depicts the Ridings of Yorkshire in their entirety North, East and West. This charming piece was commissioned by British Railways to promote rail travel to and within the Yorkshire region. Estra captures Yorkshire in this stunning work in which each town and city have their own beautiful illustration along with a complementary historical note or literal anecdote to further spellbind the viewer. It is far more than just a map; it tells a story of Yorkshire and of the Yorkshire people.
This piece has been digitally cleaned in order to remove blemishes and most signs of ageing but keeps the look, feel and integrity of the original.
A classic work that creates a centrepiece for any home and would look stunning framed (as in the illustration above). This print is produced on premium heavyweight 180 gsm paper and uses the finest quality inks that will not fade or smudge.

 

This is a much sought after work.

  • Over 50 beautiful illustrations of Yorkshire town and cities
