Background
The printer is The Bayard Press. The Canadian-born Cooper (1890-1964) was one of the talented artists recruited by Pick to give the world's oldest underground railway company style and identity in the 20th century. This poster was designed to encourage evening travel. The burrowing rabbit was an informal emblem of the system.
