This is an O scale model railway station. It’s homemade from bits of wood and metal and covered in paper. You may be wondering why we bought this. It’s simple, it is covered with reproduction posters.
These miniature posters were published by Hornby and Basset Lowke so that an extra level of realism could be added to track side platforms.
The poster for Cruden Bay is by Tom Purvis. Cruden Bay was a golfing resort in Scotland that was popular in the 1930s. Tom Purvis was a master of flat-colour poster design. The combination of golf and Purvis would be a real banker in poster collecting.
Maybe 10 000GBP!
