thumbnail link to original Carry on London theatre poster

CARRY ON LONDON , 1973

Original theatre poster, 12½"x20".

The stage show ran at the Victoria Palace Theatre from the 4th October 1973 to March 1975. Essentially an old fashioned variety revue, it featured popular sketches from the film series.
The artwork is very much in the style of the Carry On film posters and, therefore, may be by Eric Pulford or Renato Fratini.

thumbnail link to GPO poster Soho 1960

OLD COMPTON STREET, SOHO, 1960

Original General Post Office (GPO) poster, 26"x36".
Art by Peter Edwards.

This poster's fascinatingly detailed artwork - a time capsule of Soho in the era of Colin MacInnes's 'Absolute Beginners' - shows Old Compton Street approaching the junction with Dean Street, with the tower of St Anne's church beyond a bomb site. Visible are shop signs in Greek, Italian and French, and historically identifiable businesses, such as the white fronted French grocery shop, the Heaven & Hell coffee bar ('Inferno e Paradiso'), 'Going Gay' Jewelery, La Tosta restaurant, and The Swiss Hotel and Tavern. The hungover looking figure on the right distinctly resembles the painter Francis Bacon, for whom Soho was a bohemian playground - Daniel Farson wrote of Bacon's "mornings when he was grey and nearly sightless from fatigue after drinking and gambling through the night".
