To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the start of the Blitz in England, London Transport museum currently has an exhibition called “Under Attack” which looks at the role played by public transport. To accompany the exhibition , the museum’s shop has a range of related products based on the London Transport wartime signs and posters.
These signs and posters focused on advising staff and passengers on emergency rules and regulations with warnings such as “Drinking Water Only. Not to be Used for Washing” and “Sheltering on this Stairway is Prohibited”, which are reproduced here on mugs, t-shirts and travelcard holders. Other warnings relating to gas and toilet paper are also printed onto baby clothes, which you may or may not find amusing, depending on your sense of humour.
Prices start at £4.95 for the travelcard holders and go up to £14.99 for t-shirts. View the whole range on the London Transport Museum Shop website.
