The sale is being organised by the London Transport Museum itself, and the
funds raised will go towards conserving their existing collection or buying more
posters that they are currently missing.
You can browse through the entire catalogue on the Christies
website, or see some of them in person during public viewing days later this
month at their South Kensington showroom.

The Transport Museum is also selling
some postcards associated with the sale if you want a cheaper memento and
cant quite afford the real thing.
However, the Transport Museum's overflow depot at Acton is where the museum
stores its vast archive posters not on display elsewhere, and they run very occasional tours
of the climate controlled room where the posters are stored.
Tours last approximately 75 minutes and include a Q & A session, and due
to the cramped nature of the room are limited to 10 people per tour.
There are two tours each day, with the first starting at 11:30 and the second
at 13:30 and the next dates are Friday 26 and Saturday 27 October 2012. Cost is
