The artist FH Stingemore was born in 1890 and died in 1954. He designed posters for the Underground, and for its parent organisation London Transport, from 1914-1942. This map, dating from 1928, uses some of the colours that are familiar to us today, such as black for the Northern line, brown for the Bakerloo and green for the District. It shows the Underground had yet to expand into north-east London. It also chooses to feature only the centre of the network, avoiding the western ends of the lines completely.
