Description
- A fabulous montage of frontages and rooftops of 26 famous London buildings. The wood-effect surround is a little unusual as well, forming a virtual frame. Travellers were given the opportunity to enter a competition to name all the buildings. The poster is also advertising the Red Rover tickets introduced in the late 1950s to give cheaper off peak travel on buses, and the new Twin Rover for Underground as well as buses. The bus stop is right in the middle of the image to show that all these sights can be reached by bus.
