Vintage 1950s Posters in Disused Passageways of London Underground

by Denis on August 25, 2011



Work at London Underground‘s Notting Hill station in 2010 uncovered these amazing advertising posters that date from circa 1956 – 1959 when the station’s lifts were removed and replaced by escalators.

In the photos above, you can view a passageway going towards where the lifts would have been and shows the original 1900 tiles along with a wall of posters, including the Victor Galbraith Party Travel poster (with the elephant) and a poster for the British comedy film Too Many Crooks.

The photos above were taken by Mikey Ashworth for the London Underground and the text is based of the description of the photos found on his Flickr account.
