An original, and rare, London Transport ‘panel’ poster for the 1936 Rugby League Final at Wembley. The final, held on Saturday 18 April, saw Leeds beat Warrington 18-2 before a crowd of 51,250. This 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.
