Themes - Beyond the city > Day trips
Posters advertising days out by bus, tram and tube were originally printed to fill empty advertising space. They soon became important in their own right as a way of filling empty seats outside rush hour. Trips to the country by Green Line coaches or tube were particularly popular, with attractive publicity promoting different seasons of the year.These posters played an important part in establishing the reputations of artists such as Edward McKnight Kauffer and Walter Spradbery.
