When work on Letchworth Garden City started in 1903 the Garden City Association commissioned Frank Dean R.B.A. (1865-1907) to paint a series of attractive pictures showing the rural beauty of the new town. These were published as postcards, and some of the cards were used for advertising, as the printed message shown below illustrates.
