London Midland & Scottish Railway poster. Caernarvon Castle by Norman Wilkinson, 1929. View of the castle from the water. Text: Dominated by its mighty castle, Caernarvon lies today in peaceful seclusion facing the quiet waters of the Menai Strait. But it has a history as stirring as that of any fortified place in our land. The first Edward built and held it for many years against the Welsh, foremost amongst them, Owen Glendower and his hosts: and it played its part again in the Parliamentary Wars of the 17th Century. The Castle is in an excellent state of preservation, and is one of the most glorious monuments to Feudalism in the Country. Format: quad royal. Dimensions: 40 x 50 inches, 1016 x 1270 mm.
