Pencil drawing showing rear of London General Omnibus Company bus with 'spoof' adverts and destinations - drawing

Description:
This pencil drawing shows the back of a London General Omnibus Company bus with a series of joke adverts and destinations on display. The drawing could be a design for the cover of a social event programme, possibly the company's Christmas party. The advert 'Lowbridges Lung Tonic' is making fun of the popular brand 'Owbridges Lung Tonic' a patented remedy for coughs and colds. 'F P Spirit Best Possible' and 'No More Barberous Shaves' refer to Frank Pick and George Shave. Pick was the managing director of the Underground group and Shave was chief engineer of the London General Omnibus Company.
