Boulton Paul & Stations North

Today’s poster.

boultonpaulposter1938 - 3277

A neat typographic effort by the Boulton Paul aircraft company, thirties font in fine form.

But that logo. Certainly it’s a combination of a roundel and the name, but it also looks rather like the very identifiable London Underground roundel logo, still in use, and globally recognised today. Intentional similarity? Some gap to mind.

From the Flightglobal website archive.
