This large and beautifully printed wood engraving presents a pastoral idyll of the countryside – peaceful and unchanged in comparison to London’s devastation. It is pictured on pages 294/295, along with its preparatory drawing, in Ian Rogerson’s catalogue raisonne, “The Wood Engravings of Agnes Miller Parker”. He suggests it was cut for London Transport but never used. I was able to corroborate Rogerson’s view when this same engraving, photocopied on bond paper, came up to auction in the estate of Christian Barman. Barman was Frank Picks Publicity Officer in charge of posters at London Transport.
