A time capsule in the Tube

Woah! Recently work on the London Underground meant that unused areas were exposed for the first time in years. One section hadn’t been open to the public since the 1950’s and there’s stacks of vintage posters. The poster adds..

“The station’s lifts were removed and replaced by escalators. These are in an old lift passageway.”

They’re not going to tear them down either, which is great …

“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!”
