Now that the clocks have gone forward one hour in the UK for the start of British Summer Time, it feels like spring is really with us.
Today’s post features beautiful vintage floral posters with a spring theme from the London Transport Museum.
The posters were originally created back in the 1920s and 1930s to encourage Londoners to use the Tube as one of the quickest and most reliable ways to see more of their city.
The artists behind these posters turned to nature for inspiration in the form of crocuses, daisies, daffodils and bluebells. And Kew Gardens, in particular, was featured as an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Apparently, the 1920s and 30s were when art on the London Underground truly blossomed. The predominant style was Art Deco which was modern, colourful and light-hearted, reflecting the optimism of the period.
You can buy reproductions of these seasonal posters, which form part of a Spring Collection, at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden Piazza or online.
Also, you may like to know that there are mugs, aprons, bags and t-shirts available as part of the collection.
So, why not treat yourself and bring a little spring sunshine into your home…
