Somebody at the Tilling Group of Omnibus Companies must have found some funds left in the budget in the late 1950s.

The majority of bus and coach posters are poor cousins to those of the Railway and Underground but for a short period they absolutely smashed it (to use a modern phrase)

On a par with some of the pre war Shell designs yet surprisingly affordable.

I just happen to have a couple for sale on ebay right now !!

$_57 (3)

$_57 (4)

The first is by Antony Lake the second by Nevin all I can find as reference is 3 railway posters , anyone got any further info ?

Update : these sold for £65 which is pretty satisfying

So next time you are driving around this wonderful country and see a coach trip just think, maybe there is an artist sketching away on the back seat for Nationals latest advertising campaign ??
