This attractive print is one of a set of six which were designed in 1936 to be printed on menus for The Orient Line. The illustration of “The Horse Guards” is signed and dated, “Barnett Freedman, 1936.” Freedman (1901-1958), a well-regarded illustrator of the 20s and 30s, found much success as a commercial artist.

The others in the set are:

Buckingham Palace from the Mall
The Tower of London
Windsor Castle, Norman Gate
St. James's Palace
Hampton Court Palace
