Original lithographic poster, before the lettering.
Designed and printed for the Soldiers and Sailors Tobacco Fund at Avenue Press.
Limited to 30 copies on special extra quality paper.
The poster, which sold for one guinea in 1916 sold out by 1920.

The Tower in the background is the belfry of the famous Cloth Hall the purpose of which ironically was to warn the citizens of impending disaster.
On November 22nd 1914, German incendiary bombs hit the Hall, and the wooden scaffolding (seen in the image) caught fire, the blaze spreading rapidly. The scaffolding was there because of a local stonemason, Alphonse Angillis, he had almost completed his work restoring the tower.

Frank Brangwyn portraitAnglo-Welsh artist Frank Brangwyn was actually born in Bruges (1867), but his family returned to London when he was eight years old. He took to sketching regularly in his early teens and, aged 18, Brangwyn exhibited at the Royal Academy for the first time. During the 1890s he produced book illustrations, continuing to do this for the rest of his career.

In the 1900s Brangwyn began designing furniture, textiles, ceramics and other media. He was made an Official War artist in World War I, gaining repute through his posters, and was further recognised with an RA appointment (1919) and a knighthood (1941). Brangwyn was given a major retrospective exhibition at the Royal Academy, the first time this honour had been accorded to a living artist.
