An historically significant, and rare, London Transport ‘panel’ poster advertising a football match between England and Germany at Tottenham Hotspurs’ north London ground on 4th December 1935. This was the first full football international to take place between the teams in England. The poster, for display inside Tube carriages, was designed by Eric Lombers and Tom Eckersley – the latter at the start of his illustrious career as one of Britain’s foremost graphic designers. [England won 3-0].
