Poster, London & North Eastern Railway, Continent via Harwich by Tom Purvis, about 1933. Depicts a man and a woman drinking in a bar. The uniformed, moustachioed man is seen in outline form from the rear, as a well-dressed woman leans forward in discussion, smoking a cigarette, with a bottle of wine on the table. In the background a man reads a newspaper, and a waiter approaches with a tray. The scene is depicted in a limited range of bold colours, with the figures largely in outline.
