Premium travel poster capturing the essence of Chelmsford, the county town of Essex, with a history dating back to Roman times when it was known as Caesaromagus. The town's transformation began in the medieval period, marked by the granting of a market in 1199 and its designation as the county town of Essex by 1218. In the modern era, Chelmsford earned the title of the 'birthplace of radio,' housing Marconi's pioneering wireless factory (1899) and hosting the first wireless broadcasts (1920). It also became the seat of the Church of England's Diocese of Chelmsford in 1914. Today, Chelmsford stands as a thriving city, boasting a lively nightlife and achieving city status in 2012 as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

This illustration showcases Shire Hall, a noteworthy Grade-II listed building on Tindal Square. Erected in 1791 to accommodate Essex County Council and local assize courts, Shire Hall was masterfully designed by architect John Johnson in the classic style. Overlooking Tindal Square at the head of Chelmsford High Street, Shire Hall is an iconic testament to the city's history. While currently vacant, plans for the redevelopment of Shire Hall are in progress, preserving its historic significance for future generations.
