Talking Tees Valley: Railway Posters and Seaside Holidays

05 September 2022

Each month we use objects and photos from our museums in the Tees Valley to take a closer look at the lives and stories from people in our area.

This month we are looking in Railway Posters and holidays to the seaside, inspired by a recent exhibition at Head of Steam – Darlington Railway Museum. Railways posters are now seen as iconic pieces of art that captured particular moments in time, here we look at their advertising power and some of the local places they were promoting.

Join us in this pack to explore your own experiences of seaside holidays and the role the railways played in them!

This activity pack contains images, discussion points and activities for you to enjoy.
