In the Bank of England vault under London you find stacks of gold bars worth £156 MILLION.

But not only gold bars! What's on the walls? All the gold is protected by vintage travel posters on the wall. Does anyone know the history? Are they originals?

The Independent reports that one of the vaults was used as a staff canteen during World War II and still has cruise posters lining its wall.

This shows that vintage posters fit anywhere :-)
