This bright and engaging poster by Mary Koop features a swarm of vibrantly coloured umbrellas as they move towards the beckoning doors of the department store in the distance. The doors in the background of the poster, as well as indicating the allure of the sales of the city, may also be representative of the entrance to the Underground, a refuge from the ever-changing London weather.
Mary Koop produced ‘Summer Sales’ for the Underground Electric Railway Company Ltd in 1925, enticing riders of the tube to use the service to reach the sales of the summer in London. Koop, born Mary Bredall in 1884, studied at the Croydon School of Art and the London School of Art before beginning her work with the London Underground.
