1959 vintage "River Thames" poster found at Notting Hill Gate tube station, 2010

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 and will be safe.


This is a poster selling the virtues of travel and trips on the Thames. I'm uncertain who issued it as I doubt it is an LT one.


The photos were taken officially - please do credit London Underground in any links.


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!
