A Porter's Artistic Poster

A Porter's Artistic Poster.

When the public see on the Dunedin railway station a poster that has been painted as an advertisement for the next mystery train they will praise it as the work of someone who has the makings of a clever and imaginative artist (says the Dunedin Star). The subject is a long train rounding a curve at the toe of a snow-topped mountain. The engine front transformed into the image of a laughing fur-clad hiking lady, the funnel smoke woven into a jolly message to on-lookers. Mr. Bert Marsh, one of the reserve porters, has worked out the design most skilfully.
