Old posters found in Notting Hill tube station
Published on June 10th, 2010 | by Admin0
Work at the station has recently uncovered these amazing advertising posters in non-public areas and that date from c1956 – 1959 when the station’s lifts were removed and replaced by escalators. These are in an old lift passageway.
Here a variety of posters can be seen – some are London Transport’s own posters such as the ‘elephant’ by Victor Galbraith – but others include the Royal Blue sailor by Daphne Paddern.
We will be leaving these intact – and please do not pester the station staff as the posters are wholly inaccessible – which is why they’ve probably survived 50 odd years!
