Three powerful posters from The New Haven Rail Road in 1950, designer unknown.
These paper cut maps by Kartegraphic are rather fun. This is, of course, London.
Sheep graze in Hyde Park, London, in the 1930s – these economical lawnmowers were a common sight right up until the 1950s.
1930s’ architecture comes to the parks of Whitehaven (above) and Swindon (below).
Paddington Station, as painted by the excellent Doreen Fletcher, slightly further west in London than usual.
The second poster in our occasional series dates from 1925 and the hand of designer Carlo Biscaretti. No monkeys were harmed in the making of this poster however, because if you look closely (and in accordance with local Italian advertising rules), the cap is still firmly on the bottle.
Two illustrations by Ronald Saxby from The Book of Westminster, published in 1964. Above, Berwick Street, Soho, and below, Shepherd Market, Mayfair.
