Entertainment

Expand Theme infomation Expand Theme information

The range of entertainment on offer in London provided countless vibrant and enticing subjects for transport posters. Rather than advertising specific venues or events, posters usually promoted general activities such as shopping or going to the theatre. Many aimed to encourage travel to the city in the evenings and at weekends. Others encouraged regular commuters to stay in the city after work, rather than travelling home at rush hour. In the 1930s, posters were also issued with listings of specific events scheduled for that week.

Markets

Expand Sub-theme infomation Expand Theme information

Many of London's markets date back to medieval times. Their historic significance makes them as much a visitor attraction as a place to shop. As well as markets in the city, posters promoted travel to country markets by Green Line coach or country bus. Recent posters tend to capture the vibrant colours and atmosphere experienced by the visitor. In the 1910s and 1920s however, they focused more on the tradition of the market profession.
