Architectural Series Civic Centres by Claude Buckle

These architectural Civic Centres posters were issued from March to July 1951. The reference numbers on each of the posters indicate that they were issued in the order: Birmingham, Cardiff, Derby, Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow. The posters were probably commissioned on a single contract from BR. The first two listed were for Western Region, then three for Midland Region and finally one for Scottish Region. The original artwork would have been produced at the Vernham Dean studios probably in 1950 but could have been as early as 1948 when Claude Buckle would have been fully established at Vernham Dean after his move from London in 1946.
