A few years back I when I was living in the U.K I came across this great old tourism/rail poster for Whistable. Not too dissimilar from the type of thing you’d spot in Selling the Dream. This particular poster grabbed my attention because of the typeface used for the headline.
Some time back I read Diggers, Hatters & Whores by Steven Eldred-Gigg—a historic reference to the New Zealand gold rushes in the 1850s. There’s something really fascinating and actually unbelievable about the daily hardships of the people living in NZ during those times.
