Workers renovating the Notting Hill tube station in London have uncovered some lovely advertising posters that date to the 1950s.

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!
