Anyone who follows this here blog will know what big fans of London Underground posters we are, so you can imagine how excited we were to hear that 300 vintage tube posters are going under the hammer this week. The collection features work from 1913-1955, with each piece expected to fetch between £800-£15,000. If that seems a bit steep, or you just want to do some window shopping before the auction on Thursday October 4, head down to Christie’s South Kensington.
