About

Original 1950s London transport bus poster with artwork by Philip Thompson. This atmospheric image of London’s nightlife was also used on a larger poster by London Transport promoting travel to the West End. This rarer version, without any copy, was probably used in London buses and at travel offices. This vintage poster is sized 25 x 33 inches and is in excellent condition with clean borders and professionally backed to linen. It will be sent rolled.
