The Pencil Drawings of Claude Buckle

This page illustrates the may detailed pencil drawings made by Claude Buckle. The drawings often sketches were for the most part proposals for commercial work for the railways, power stations or general industrial scenes. Many of the drawings are pre-war made for Great Western Railways and used for menu cards popular in the holiday season. Some were proposals for posters as in Durham Cathedral. Some were made into posters at a later time.

All the pencil sketches are of real places and nearly all exist today. To see the locations click on the location map page.

The publicity arm of the Great Western railway was in full swing at the time Buckle made many of the Sketches shown on this page. Here is an example Totnes - Buckfast Abbey holiday suggestion naming the paintings and drawings made by Buckle. It is still a popular holiday destination today.
