Tyne Bridge Grand Opening by King George V in 1928
The Tyne Bridge is a through arch bridge over the River Tyne, linking Newcastle and Gateshead opened in 1928 by King George V.
Four years in the making, the Tyne bridge is 389 metres long and is now a Grade II* listed building.
The Tyne Bridge is one of the defining emblems of Tyneside.
No posters from the opening exist (None were ever made to my knowledge) and so this is an imagining of what one would have looked like.
This poster is a completely original design based on adverts from contemporary posters of the time and the information we have available.
The poster is designed by me 100% from scratch in high resolution, none of it has been cut and pasted from elsewhere which would compromise it’s quality.
It is A2 in size and printed locally (to Newcastle) on high quality satin paper.
