Argh – those evil people at Christie’s are tormenting me again with another sale of (for me) unaffordable, yet highly desirable retro posters.
The full list is here, and below are a few of my personal favourites.
Click on each for larger versions via the Christie’s website.
Printed in 1938 - Has a very modern, almost scientific look to it.
An Air France map of their routes around the world - appeals to my map fetish.
Topical for the 2012 London Olympics
The cleaned up and cargo-less river would have been out of place when this poster was printed.
Personally, I find standing in a crowded bus/train surrounded by other wet people to be a reason to walk!

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
