Hidden Posters of Notting Hill Gate

This is really a cool find! Work at the Notting Hill Gate tube station has recently uncovered these amazing advertising posters in non-public areas dating from 1956 to 1959 when the station's lifts were removed and replaced by escalators. These are in an old lift passageway.

The above shot shows several of the posters - and the original Central London Railway tiled walls from 1900.

Totally digging the bearded character in this Royal Blue coach services poster by Daphne Padden, circa 1959.

Thanks to Mikey Yashworth for all sharing these official shots he captured for the London Underground.

That's Right,
