Andrew Johnson (1893 – 1973)

The Tower of London (1935)



102 x 64 cm

A copy of this poster is held by the London Transport Museum (1983/4/4178).

Queen Elizabeth I, accompanied by two Yeomen Warders, surveys the white stone of the Tower of London. Johnson’s design encourages us to use London Transport (now Transport for London) to visit the Tower in all its historic glory.

Andrew Johnson was born in Portsmouth and studied at the Central School of Art and Design (now Central St Martin’s) in London. He worked as a poster designer for several advertising agencies. He designed posters for BP, Shell, the London and North Eastern Railway, Southern Railway, The Times, and General Motors (to name but a few). He made advertising graphics in New York in the late 1920s and later founded Grainger Johnson (a poster design company) with Tom Grainger. He was a member of the British Society of Poster Designers and several of his designs are held by the London Transport Museum.

Condition: backed to linen; excellent.
