"Separate Tables" movie film poster from 1959 as found in disused area of Notting Hill Gate tube station, London, 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.

 

This poster is for the 1959 film "Separate Tables" starring Deborah Kerr, Rita Hayworth, David Niven and Wendy Hiller - it was showing at the Leicester Square Theatre.

 

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!

 

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