Railway Poster Exhibition
A very successful Poster Exhibition featuring over 50 classic images from the 40′s, 50′s and 60′s was hosted by Pure Offices in partnership with Dr Richard Furness on 22 to 24 March 2012. It was hoped to garner local support as part of our efforts to help re-instate the Portishead to Bristol Temple Meads line.
The exhibition was held at Pure Offices reception, Kestrel Court, Harbour Road, Portishead, BS20 6LQ.
