Bus Interior Posters 1960’s - 1970’s
The above sign is the ONLY reproduction I have but I’ve included it as I feel it gives some idea of what ordinary people had to go through just to get to work 70 years ago.
Bus Interior Posters. Most are 24 x 11” although there is some variation. Many are dated and are from the 1970‘s. None have been used but will show signs of storage.
Above. RED ROVER tickets from the 1960’s & 1970’s. I also have some from the 1960’s that are unused and undated so you could fill in your ‘special date’. £3 each.
The term ‘Genuine Copy’ I’m going to use for the drawings below might sound a bit odd but that’s what they really are, genuine copies made by London Transport of design drawings of the Front Entrance Routemaster [front engined], the Routemaster Coach [RMC used by Green Line Country Buses] and the Front Entrance rear engined Routemaster of which only one was made. [FRM1]. Hindsight has shown what a disastrous decision it was to not put FRM’s into production. These diagrams are 23” x 16” and as said, originate from London Transport, not a copy shop! My photos don’t show them at their best, no change there I’m afraid but it’s fair to say they are a little faded but perfectly readable. Wonderful and fascinating pieces of London Transport Buses history. A unique gift for a Routemaster enthusiast. £25 each.
I just wanted to say a further thanks for the prompt delivery and to say that my fiance absolutely loves the drawings. S.
“I received the sign yesterday afternoon thank you. It is perfect”! G. UK

“I just wanted to confirm that I received the Bayswater sign. It is just as fabulous as the others, and I can't wait to get it framed and give it to my mother for her birthday. She will be thrilled”. Thank you again! E.
