NYC Destination Subway Scrolls, c. 1940s

These incredibly graphic New York City destination subway scrolls were used to direct subway commuters in the early 1940s. I love the way the fonts are condensed and expanded to fill the space— from the school of “make it fit!”

These were found at Winter Works on Paper in Brooklyn, NY. (www.winterworksonpaper)
