1. Devon’s reputation as a holiday hot-spot was sealed with the development of the Great Western Railway. And in 1923 – 1947, they already knew that taking the train to the sunny South-West was just the ticket.
3. It’s not all just sea and sand in Devon though – this 1937 Great Western Railway poster tempted rail travellers by giving them a taste of the wild beauty of Dartmoor, as well as some great cheap fares.
