London Underground Anniversary Celebrated With 150 Vintage Posters [Pics]
Transport Museum displays an exquisite range of posters telling the history of the Underground.
London is celebrating 150 years of its underground system, and pulling out all the stops. First, was the announcement of permanent artwork by Mark Wallinger to be displayed in stations, and now comes an exhibition by the London Transport Museum showing 150 posters that have been created for the transportation service over the years.
London tube posters have always been notable for using a commercial platform to display unique and interesting works of art. These are not mere advertisements and PSAs, they are a history of graphic design and artistic style.
