Vintage railway surf posters

Fancy splahing out some cash this January ? Probably not say most of you since we're usually skint after Christmas. Tempting but still in the £200 - £300 price range are these original railway posters from the 1930s and 40s advertising the stoke of bellyboarding in Newquay. Bellyboards have been ridden on these shores since early last century and these great posters show the early history of Cornish surfing. The auction is run by Morphets in Harrogate and starts on 15 jan. Bellyboarding is still going strong on these shores among the older population who started doing it back in the day and a few new fans like John Isaac , see www.pronetobelly.blogspot.com .
