City-Sanctioned Graffiti!

I was recently researching things about Grand Central Terminal and came across this a-w-e-s-o-m-e bit of history. 


From the  NY Daily News Archives, this 1961 photo shows a subway poster that was put up throughout Grand Central Terminal by the Transit Authority Panel to help passengers while away the time waiting for trains.

Hello, it’s city-sanctioned graffiti and I LOVE IT!!!!

This lady clearly has a penchant for drawing eyeglasses on weird pig-dog-bear creatures…

I’ll say it now, “Bring this campaign back, big graffiti-laden cities of the world!!”

…because I’ll be the first one to miss my train while crafting the perfect pair of spectacles…
