Tourism companies commissioned well-known artists of the day to create images for their pictorial posters.


Belfast artist Paul Henry’s poster scenes became the iconic, almost quintessential, images of Ireland, and some images, including View of Connemara (1926) and Lough Derg (1927), became best sellers.


The largest Irish railway company, Great Southern Railways, used these posters in the 1920s popular tourist locations such as Glendalough, Killarney and Connemara.
