Summary
NoS synopsis: Begins with a tour of the ‘Art for All’ exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - an exhibition of the original paointings on which London Transport posters were based. The ideology of LT design is explained along with pictures of the posters, and station designs. The interior of a Routemaster bus illustrates better design, as does a new train and new stations. Gants Hill, for example, has a new layout. There are several different roadside bus shelters so that they blend in with the surrounding architecture. East Finchley and St. John’s Wood stations are shown as examples.
