Museum Depot

Sketches from the London Transport Museum Depot.

We spent the morning being guided round the museum depot.  It was fascinating to be shown a visual history of London Transport through the poster designs.  The depot contains many of the original paintings used for the posters.  One example showed how the artist envisaged the future of London Transport. Some designs were the height of the avant-garde, and we discovered posters by some well know artists, including Man Ray’s pair of posters (sketched in the first picture.)
