Additional information : The Underground commissioned this poster in 1924. It was designed by Richard T Cooper to promote the changing face of the network at the time. To the right, a ghostly Edwardian family prepare to board an early Tube train. To the left, the new standard stock has its air-powered doors open to welcome contemporary passengers. These new trains were introduced in 1923 to serve the recently modernised City & South London Railway.
