Junction of the Great Western Railway with the London Branch, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Junction of the Great Western Railway with the London Branch, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Junction of the Great Western Railway with the London Branch, 1844. 'Two signal-posts of great size, and conspicuous for their markings and colour, have been placed on the left of the up line, in the angle formed by the junction of the two lines. One of these posts - a very tall one - is devoted to the use of the Great Western Line; and the other - a short one - to the use of the West London'. The signals '...are so arranged that the one is made to work relatively with the other. Thus, when the full face of the cross bar of the branch post is turned full on the line, giving warning "To Stop," the position of the round board above it gives signal of "All Clear" to the main line, and so on. Meantime the tall post makes its own signal of "All Clear" to the main line, and "Stop" to the branch one. At night these signals are made by lights'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V.

Contemporary interior, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Contemporary interior, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Contemporary interior, c1950. Monochrome exercise. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time
