Posters Discovered In London Tubeway Are Beautiful

Wow, this is so cool. I love the idea that such amazing history is laying out there, buried, out of sight, just waiting to be discovered.

From Grain Edit:

Recent renovations at the Notting Hill gate tube station have uncovered these mid-century posters. The posters were located in a non-public area and date from c1956 - 1959 when the station’s lifts were removed and replaced by escalators. Mike Ashworth, who is the ‘Design and Heritage Manager’ for London Underground, has more images at his Flickr account.
