LT Roman Centurion London Underground Bainbridge

£250.00

Original vintage London Transport poster featuring a fun image of an ancient white stone statue of an elegant lady sewing up the torn toga of a smiling Roman soldier (Weni Wedi Weci signed J Caesar engraved on the statue base with a heart and Balbus amat Portiam in graffiti below), in a ruin room with Roman pillars and the London Underground roundel logo on the floor, leading out to trees on hills in the background with a rhyme and text below: "A careless centurion from Gaul / Tore his toga on Hadrian's Wall / He longed for his home / And the comforts of home - or Verulamium, which had all mod cons including central heating (some of them are still there). Green Line chariots on routes 712, 713 and 714 would have taken him from Londinium to St Albans via Via Watling. Et tu Brute." Artwork by John Bainbridge (1920-1978), who designed posters for London Underground from 1953 to 1957. Fair condition, tape marks, minor loss and tears, backed on linen.
