Lot 191: Hassall (John, 1868-1948). An original GNR poster, circa 1908, colour lithograph, showing a boy on a sand dune with hands raised having buried a man, logo of GNR top left and printed caption "A passive resister" printed along with signature in lower margin, some letterpress offsetting to upper margin, several creases and mostly closed marginal tears, 78 x 56.5cm (30.75 x 22.25ins). This poster was presumably created at a similar date to the famous 'Skegness is so bracing' poster, also designed for GNR. No other copy of this poster has been located. (1)
