Underground Posters

If like me, you are drawn to the early posters used to advertise the London Underground network, you might be interested to know a batch of them are coming up for sale shortly.

Sadly, they come with the sort of prices that result in my simply looking and not touching. So far.

It was an interest in Transport posters that resulted in my
first meeting Annie Mole, at an exhibition at the Transport Museum in Covent Garden.

The good thing is that there website of the auction house is rather good at displaying the wares for sale so the rest of us can at least look at what richer people are buying.

To see the whole lot, click here - and if necessary click "Grid" to make it easier to see the posters.

A few of my favourites...

And not about transport, but in the same auction - erm isn't that Ken Livingstone?
