A set of vintage British Rail posters discovered under floorboards in a house have been sold at auction for £18,000.
The posters advertising seaside resorts, including the Isle of Man, had been used to line the floorboards in an Edinburgh house.
They were found in good condition by a property developer and sold by Onslow's auctioneers in Dorset.
The Isle of Man poster, which shows a girl playing on Douglas beach, was bought for £1,900.
