This poster was commissioned by the Underground in 1926. Frederick Charles Herrick's bold design was issued in the summer. It promotes the Tube as a cool and comfortable means of travelling while the weather is hot. A complementary poster was issued in the winter declaring 'It is warmer below'.
Frederick Charles Herrick designed posters for the Underground Group and London Transport between 1920 and 1933.
