London's calendar has always been full of public events. These range from large scale annual events and one-off festivals, for which thousands of Londoners take to the streets, to smaller exhibitions held at a variety of specific venues. Transport companies have always taken the opportunity to promote travel to such events through their posters. On public holidays, when there were no scheduled events to promote, posters encouraged Londoners to travel out into the countryside or to explore the city.

Double crown : Double crown is the descriptive size for posters that are 30 x 20 inches. This is slightly smaller than the standard double royal size, which is the most commonly used by the Underground. Double crown posters were originally displayed on the front panel of buses and the side panels of trams.

Object of the Month

Country walks were marketed as a healthy antidote to a week spent in an office or factory. This embroidery of a young couple enjoying a picnic was created for a poster to encourage people to get out and about.
