Windermere by Claude Buckle

Windermere The MV Swan

Swan, Teal, Swift, Turn, the famous motor vessels of Windermere have been sailing Windermere in the ownership of the railway companies since the 1800’s. This railway poster shows MV Swan and is actually from an earlier carriage print by Claude Buckle. The poster can be dated by the super structure of the boat, which is before the vessel was modernised. The Motor vessel (MV) Swan is about to berth at Bowness on Windermere in 1957. Vickers at Barrow built her for the LMS in 1938.    Date of issue 1957 BR       BACK
