Craft & Design

I’m fascinated by this story of a sort of “design archaeology” going on in the London Underground.

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.

Grain Edit shares more information and pictures. What a fantastic find!

    Wow. Add some water and these scenes are something right out of Bioshock. Are you sure these weren’t found in Rapture?
