Rustic, rural & romantic, this 1921 design by Charles Cundall (RA) proved highly popular becoming the best selling London Transport poster of the year. Published by the Underground Electric Railways Co. , printed by Waterlow & Sons, and part of the London Transport Museum collection, this is an exceptionally rare survivor.

The poster is unbacked with small tears and nicks along the margins consistent with its age. The upper left corner has been stabilised with archival tape. This is an early outing for the poster before it is taken to the Conservator.
