"The Spirit of Coal - Gas" - poster for the British Commercial Gas Association by Septimus E Scott, 1924

A wonderful image by the poster artist Septimus Scott and commissioned by the British Commercial Gas Association in the mid-1920s to sell the town gas produced from coal - the grime and dirt of coal and collieries are seen transformed by the glowing figure of gas. The exhibit at Wembley mentioned was the 1924 Empire Exhibition at Wembley, north London.
