Liverpool Overhead Railway advertising poster

old poster advertising the overhead railway

Millions of people travelled on the Liverpool Overhead Railway each year. Most travelled for work but many just wanted to enjoy the amazing views of the river, docks and shipping from the elevated railway.

The Liverpool Overhead Railway Company used colourful posters and leaflets to advertise this unique journey along the waterfront. The posters encouraged visitors to travel on the 'First and Fastest Electric Overhead Railway in the World'.
