Original Vintage poster issued in 1923 as one of a series commissioned by Frank Pick for the London Underground promoting London's principal museums. The artwork by Kauffer (which is signed in the plate and dated 1922) illustrates the Rocket steam engine of Mr Stevenson based on the museum's miniaturized push-button display of Stevenson's prototype engine.
