Submitted Picture E mailJolly Fisherman railway poster for use with story



Skegness was little more than a village, with around 400 residents who earned their living as fishermen or farmers, until the town’s first rail connection was built the mid 1870s. Once the trains began coming into town, Skegness burst into life as a successful seaside resort. The regular rail journeys that bought visitors in their thousands to Skegness also gave rise to one of the town’s best known symbols – the bright and ‘Jolly’ Fisherman. He was made in 1908 by craftsman John Hassall, for an advertising poster on behalf of the Great Northern Railway Company
