Blog Post No 101 ……Commission for this poster was at the time when Corporation buses were taken over by private enterprise. In turn Yorkshire Rider presumably was taken over or absorbed into progressively larger concerns.

Whether it was my idea or not, the intention was to take an image of different transport vehicles from various locations in the area over a period of time and paint them in detail. Then choose an iconic building associated with the location of each vehicle. This to be represented in an impressionistic style.

Passengers or transport staff then superimposed to give ‘ life ‘ to the poster. Complete with roadside infrastructure.

I cannot take credit for the writing in my heading and tailing as this was completed separately.

Continue to be vigilant and STAY SAFE
