Green Finger

A splendid example of the "Southern Electric" style of publicity used by the Southern Railway of England during the 1930s, when the company was engaged in the large scale electrification of many of its South East England rail lines. The use of the finger to emphasise the stylised electrified lines along with the lightening flashes employed by the Southern as a 'house style' is eye catching.
