The Golden Arrow was the Southern's most prestigious train and was arguably second only to the Flying Scotsman in fame. The arrow formed a consistent and powerful motif throughout the Southern's promotion of the service. London-Paris in 6h40 isn't quite Eurostar, but it has style!

The poster dates from 1931 and is the work of Shep (Charles Shepard).

The poster is clearly strongly derivative of the earlier 1929 poster, but I have never seen that accredited to Shep, and this one for which I have no date but seems 1930s to me.
