Paignton , South Devon. Probably the most iconic of all of the Great Western Railway's Posters, this one dated 1938 must have influenced many a holiday maker to come to Paignton. Sadly the war in Europe put an abrupt end to holidays for the Great British public. This 1938 Great Western Railway Poster "Paignton" was painted by Chas Pears.
