The world’s first subterranean railway, the London Underground—now providing three million rides daily—opened its first section in 1863. In 1908 Frank Pick, an Underground executive charged with publicity for the expanding transit system, began seeking out the country’s best artists and designers to produce advertising posters, and soon the Underground was established as a leader in the field of poster publicity. The twelve posters in this calendar, all from the London Transport Museum, promote travel to the London Zoo, Kew Gardens, Regents Park, and other picturesque destinations.
