Posters at DLC

Local lady, Paula Stewart noticed these posters in June 2018 hanging up in the windows at the Africa Pavilions at David Livingstone Centre.  The artist appears to be ‘Ivan Polley’ noted on the small print on the bottom.

Marked “Blantyre Station” and faded by the sun, I had wondered if there were the actual posters once on the billboards at Blantyre Station, before the current building with larger windows was built in the 80s. They’re also marked “David Livingstone Centre” but i think this was merely to let people know to alight from the trains for that venue. When the old station was renovated, several items from it were transferred up to David Livingstone Centre, amongst them the electric lamp standard which can now be seen near the world fountain.

Can you tell me more about the posters?
