The London Underground: celebrating 150 years (1863-2013)

On 9th January 1863 the world’s first underground train made its first passenger journey of 3 1/2 miles from Paddington Station to Farringdon Station on the Metropolitan Railway Line in London. In 1908 London Underground commissioned its first poster advertising designs becoming one of the leading patrons in poster art.

The American-born graphic artist Edward McKnight Kauffer, for example, was one of Britain’s most notable and influential poster artists during the 20th century, producing some truly stunning posters for the London Underground and London Transport. The London Transport Museum in Covent Garden will be holding an exhibition – “Poster Art 150” – from February to October 2013, showcasing works of art by both well known and lesser known artists who all made an impact on its outstanding poster advertising campaign.

To celebrate this special anniversary, here are some of the original vintage London Underground posters listed on the AntikBar website:
