20 Gorgeous Vintage Posters For The London Underground

1929: ‘No wet no cold’ | 20 Gorgeous Vintage Posters For The London Underground

Going Home Late?; by Haz, 1932. Similarly, ‘Going Home Late?’ sought to remind customers of the convenience provided by late-running services. The reminder also helped to alleviate pressure on services during peak times, when, as now, overcrowding could be a problem.

Keep Warm Travel Underground; by Kathleen Stenning, 1925. ‘Keep Warm Travel Underground’ was part of a four poster set to encourage people to Travel Underground, the other three posters promote use to help navigation (‘Don’t Get Lost’) during rainfall (‘Avoid the Wet’) and thunderstorms (‘Take Cover’).

This design is balanced, and clearly shows the purpose of the poster. It shows that the train travels through the day and the night, and includes both cities. The design is in one point perspective.
