London underground 50s time capsule

I love seeing discoveries like this-
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. Mike Ashworth, who is the Design and Heritage Manager for London underground took the photos and says the area will never be open to the public as its very inaccesible - which is probably why its survived untouched for so long. The posters will be left as they are and the room closed up. A pretty cool glimpse back into the 50s. Photos copyright London underground.
