Gill Saunders


Thirty detachable vintage posters drawn from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s renowned archive take you back to the Golden Age of travel

See Inside


From the restorative retreat of a palm-lined beach to the brisk breeze of Bridlington, holidaying by the sea is hard to beat. For over a century, whether by boat, train, car or plane, we’ve flocked to the coast at home and abroad. These vintage advertisements help evoke the early 20th century’s Golden Age of travel.

With an introduction by Gill Saunders, this book is packed with charm and style, and includes thirty detachable full-page posters to transport you back to the sun, sea and sand.
