MICKEY MONDAYS: Manifestations of the Mouse

London Transport poster 1934, 'artist unknown' – although Disney might have had something to say about the bottom image!

The poster is an indication of the six-year old Mickey Mouse's international appeal in the '30s and (tailing a list headed by the legendary 18th century English pantomime clown, Joseph Grimaldi) the place he had already effortlessly secured within British pop culture...

Thanks to Didier Ghez at Disney History for the heads-up and if you'd like to order a print, visit The London Transport Museum.
