Additional information :
Brownfield designed this London Transport poster in 1980. It advertises the connecting Underground lines available at St Pancras station. Passengers coming into London by train would be greeted by posters likes this to encourage them not to end their journey there. The Victoria, Metropolitan, Circle, Piccadilly or Northern lines were all available to travel into the West End or the City.
The Underground roundel is shown in the sky as the sun or satellite looking out over the City. This placement suggests the universal nature of the Underground, covering the whole of London. It was used in this way in by Man Ray in 1938, and by Misha Black and John Barker in 1947.
