Inspiration

Thanks to one of our readers, Simon, I have something really special to show you this morning. Check out these long lost posters hidden in a disused tube tunnel at Notting Hill Gate in London. They are fabulous. 1956 - 1959. I especially love the River Thames poster, last picture. Imagine switching on a flickering light and finding these? They are apparently going to stay right where they are! Thanks Simon!



All pictures from London Underground.

These are spectacular! It is hard to believe that they could be hidden like this. The designs are wonderful. Is there a link, or do you know the photog personally?
Thanks!
