London Transport Museum

Last weekend saw Dan and I take a trip to Covent Garden to visit the London Transport Museum to see the last exhibition for the 150 Years of the London Underground Tube posters.

We started out with a yummy burger at Shake Shack and it was the best burger we'd both had in a long time. The chesesy fries are literally, delicious.

After some nibble, we headed to the museum. After a lengthy wait we headed in to look around.

It didn't take us long to find what we were looking for, rooms and room full of beautiful posters dating back to as early as 1800's. They are so beautiful, with the old type and print screened imagery.

Dan and I liked this one, so much we bought the replica which we'll hang in our flat :)

Something which caught my attention was the old ticket stubs that were used. They are the classic vintage style you'd expect, which is also taking a come back in a lot of graphic design work and on sites such as Etsy and . This is the style of design which I will always be drawn to, especially because it's so beautiful.

After a few hours of looking around and getting annoyed at children screaming, we headed out and round some shops. A quote which caught my attention that also rings truth.

"Don't be encumbered by history. Go off and do something wonderful"
