Title: Tours in Connemara, Galway, Achill & West of Ireland By: Hugo Alessi Date: 1900 (Published) Ireland Dimensions: 47 x 33 (119.5 x 84 cm) An absolutely lovely travel reproduction poster, originally painted by Hugo Alessi (name in the lower left) was first issued by the Midland Great Western Railway of Ireland in the year 1900. The primary function of this poster, like any travel poster was to encourage tourism in Ireland, more specifically in the western side of the country. This poster was primarily distributed throughout North America. The poster presents a variety of scenes from the western coast of Ireland. Places depicted in the work include Galway, Achill, Connemara, & Sligo. The scenes show off western Ireland's coastal landscape, historical graveyards (dating back to 543 A.D.) & interior lakes. At the bottom, the poster reads "For illustrated tourist guides, or other particulars, apply to the manager's office, Broadstone Station, Dublin." The Midland Great Western Railway (MGWR) was the third largest Irish gauge railway company in Ireland. It was incorporated in 1845 & absorbed into the Great Southern Railways in 1924. At its peak the MGWR had a network of 538 miles (866 km), making it Ireland's third largest network after the Great Southern & Western Railway & the Great Northern Railway of Ireland.
