London Transport Posters


This is the website for the London Transport Museum's poster collection, dating back to the 1900s, and currently containing over 1000 posters, and 700 original poster artworks. One of the finest poster archives in the world, the online database is searchable by keyword, by theme (including entertainment, events, and wartime London), by artist, or by decade (from the 1900s to the present day). Other features of the website include a useful glossary of printing terms, the curator's top ten posters and artworks from the collection, and a number of informative 'stories behind the collection', complete with enlargeable images.
