The Golden Arrow was the Southern's most prestigious train and was arguably second only to the Flying Scotsman in fame. This advert is one of a pair (the other is in French) for this Pullman cross-channel service which ran from London's Victoria Station

SP007GoldenArrow

The arrow shows a speeding locomotive and the tender carries the words 'Southern Railway'. The French counterpart naturally carries 'Nord' on the tender - the French operator was Chemin de Fer du Nord. The arrow in this case symbolically points South - the French points North.

This style and motif were used in a later 1931 poster by Shep.
