Poster, London & North Eastern Railway, East Coast Joys, No 1, Walking Tours, by Tom Purvis, 1931. Coloured lithograph in bold colours depicting a man and woman walking along a cliff top, with a beach below. Accompanying text reads "Travel by L.N.E.R. to the drier side of Britain". Format double royal. Poster has been backed so full size dimensions are 666 mm x 1045 mm.

Alternative Interpretation – Quote about this artwork from a community member with lived experience of disability, D/deafness and/or neurodivergence. Given as part of the ‘Go as you Please’, Curating for Change, exhibition project: “You’ll follow the signs for the accessible route and then they'll disappear. It's really difficult because then you feel like people are thinking ‘Oh, is she banging on about accessibility again?’ but it’s important and I’m not ‘banging on’ about it, I just want to be able to do the things I should be able to do and I think that’s what I want people to understand.“ (On the clifftop, these travellers enjoy a moment of connection, sharing the view and the accomplishment of the climb. But in rural areas and environments such as the one in this poster, there is usually an additional and often complicated journey from the destination station to the destination viewpoint or landmark, that rail staff cannot assist with.)
