This linocut by Edward Bawden was used as part of a larger collage of London monuments by Bawden, for a 1952 London Transport Poster (see the photos for a write-up of the poster). As such, this is an un-numbered linocut as it was produced for the poster, the final version of which was a letterpress and lithographic print.
