With all the attention given to a certain football tournament, it is good to see that the London Transport Museum hasn’t forgotten about that other favourite summer sporting fixture, Wimbledon. Their shop has a range of products featuring vintage Wimbledon Poster designs.
Dating from the 1920s and 1930s, these six classic designs were originally used on posters to tell people who to reach the tennis tournament by public transport. The designs are mainly in shades of green and pink and do look very much of that era. Reproductions of four of the posters are available now as posters priced £13.95, but the designs have also been put onto mugs (£6.99 each or £27.50 for a set of four), placemats (£24.99 for a set of four), coasters (£12.99 for four) and travelcard holders (£4.95).
