London Transport Boxed Holiday Notecards
In the early 1900s London's transit system, dubbed the "Underground" because of its below-street level trains, began using the modern graphic poster to promote rail travel both in and around the city. By 1909 the first Christmas holiday poster had been produced, inviting people to "make your Xmas purchases in comfort," and the tradition of promoting holdiay travel has continued for more than a century. This 1951 poster by British artist Maurice Wilson, who produced posters for London Transport in the mid-1900s, is in the collection of the London Transport Museum, one of the finest poster archives in the world.
