Footnotes

  • This poster was produced for British Railways in 1952 with the Slogan 'Scotland For Your Holidays', Cuneo withstood gales of over 50mph to sketch this scene from a girder high above the track. He recounted: 'Working conditions here were frankly terrifying. Although swaddled in a flying suit, duffel coat, balaclava and mittens, to say nothing of long woollen underwear - I was frozen!'.
