1940s 1944 Bird British Commuter Cyril Kenneth London Underground Poster Escalator Fougasse


EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph print titled "LONDON: UNDERGROUND, 1944. Please stand on the right of the escalator" takes us back to a bustling era in British history. The image showcases a charming cartoon poster created by Fougasse, also known as Kenneth Cyril Bird, during World War II. The poster's purpose was to promote proper etiquette among commuters using the London Underground in 1944. It cleverly depicts a crowded scene of people standing on an escalator with text urging them to stand on the right side. Fougasse's illustration style adds a touch of whimsy and humor to this important message. Transporting us back in time, this lithograph captures the essence of mid-20th century England. The men and women depicted are dressed in typical attire from that period, giving us a glimpse into their daily lives during wartime. As we observe this snapshot from history, it serves as a reminder of how even small gestures like standing on one side can contribute to maintaining order and efficiency within public spaces. This timeless message resonates with modern-day commuters who continue to navigate busy transportation systems around the world. Granger Art on Demand has preserved this remarkable piece from their collection for all art enthusiasts and history buffs alike to appreciate its historical significance and artistic brilliance without commercial use intentions
