1930s Posters, I Like

Bought high-res versions of these from the Council. There are 18 to choose from, viewed via Flickr, with the accompanying blurb: Manchester Municipal School of Art organised a competition to produce pictorial posters for the Manchester Corporation Transport Department trams and buses between 1933 and 1934. In all, eighteen designs were used; the corporation paid the School of Art two guineas in order to use them. Their unusual shape was designed to fit on the back of the driver’s cab.
