This is one of two posters commissioned by London Transport in 1933 to promote the annual tennis tournament at Wimbledon. It was designed by Sybil Andrews. Whilst studying at the New Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London, Andrews shared a studio with Cyril Power. Power was later instrumental in obtaining poster commissions for her from London Transport. She acknowledged this by signing the work 'Andrew Power'. The other Wimbledon poster commissioned that year, designed by E A Marty, was in a far more conventional style. By issuing two very different posters, London Transport could appeal to a broader audience.
