A collection of stylish vintage railway posters which celebrate the golden age of the seaside package holiday have been unearthed during a house clearance.<br />
<br />
The colourful 1950s posters were discovered under a pile of knick-knacks at the back of a cupboard in a deceased elderly couple's flat in Perthshire, east Scotland.<br />
<br />
They include a racy image of a lady in a bikini promoting the resort of Mablethorpe, Lincs, and a sweet picture of a mother playing with her young child on the beach at Bognor Regis, West Sussex.<br />
<br />
In total, eight posters produced by British Railways will go under the hammer with auction house Lindsay Burns & Co of Perth, where they are expected to fetch £1,000.
