In the early twentieth century, London Underground and the other companies that ran the trains, trams, and trolleybuses to and fro around the city wanted to attract more riders. They hired artists to design posters spotlighting the parks, landmarks, and other neat places people could reach on public transit.
Some of the popular destinations featured on the posters were the theatres, museums, gardens, and parks all around the city of London. Many beautiful posters featuring these interesting places were produced, each one telling potential visitors which transit line would take them there. For one hundred years, copies of every poster were collected and there are now more than five thousand posters and almost one thousand original artworks at London Transport Museum.
