Another photograph from Twitter for your amusement. This time, it’s Vauxhall Bridge in the late 1950s.
The bomb site/development area hidden by the posters will one day become Terry Farrell’s MI5 headquarters.
Mr Crownfolio says that we have a copy of the Keep Britain Tidy poster, which I think is by Amstutz, but I can’t find any record of it if we do. And if anyone can identify anything else, I will be much obliged. I’ve put the picture on here giant sized (just click on it to see) so that you can have a good peer. All I know is that the poster nearest us, but the traffic lights, is for the Radio Times.
And while we’re here, there is a whole page of Guinness posters in situ. This hoarding is probably about the same period as the picture above.
As indeed are these Eckersleys on a bus, probably.
Should these have whetted your appetite, you can find lots more of them here. Have fun.
It turns out that we did have the poster after all.
I couldn’t find it because a) it doesn’t actually say Keep Britain Tidy on it and b) we hadn’t got round to cataloguing it anyway. I hope you are enjoying the carpet too.
Mr Crownfolio would also like to ask whether any of you think, as he does, that this knight has more than a passing resemblance to one D Cameron?
And thank you to everyone for the dating, in the comments and by email – much appreciated.
