EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the bustling London Underground in 1944. The image showcases a poster created by Fougasse, an acclaimed British cartoonist, promoting proper etiquette among commuters during World War II. The poster features a cleverly illustrated scene depicting a crowded platform with men of all ages waiting for their train. In bold text, it humorously states, "The more we are together, the more uncomfortable we'll be - please pass along the platform". This witty message serves as a reminder for passengers to move down the platform and make space for others. Amidst the chaos of war-time London, this lithograph captures both the practicality and charm that characterized daily life underground. The artist's skillful use of lines and shading brings depth to each character while maintaining a lighthearted tone. As we gaze upon this snapshot from history, we can't help but imagine ourselves amidst those weary commuters who relied on public transportation during challenging times. It serves as a testament to how even in moments of discomfort or inconvenience, unity and consideration towards one another can alleviate some of our burdens. This remarkable piece from The Granger Collection allows us to appreciate not only Fougasse's artistic talent but also provides insight into social norms and values during wartime England.
