“Why Go Home So Soon?” Collection
The items available are the usual sort of thing that the London Transport Museum sells – mugs, travelcard holders, coasters and placemats – but the designs are really rather lovely. They date back to 1938 from a series of posters encouraging commuters to dine out, under the slogan “Why Go Home So Soon?” Marc Fernand Severin did the original illustrations, which are in a typical 1930s style.
A set of four coasters costs £12.99. Visit the London Transport Museum website to see the full collection.
