Get ready for the Night Shift
Night Shift - London After Dark opens at the London Transport Museum on 11th September, celebrating the nocturnal lives of Londoners - including, apparently, “hedonists, rat catchers, jazz-lovers and hacks” - and the “transport heritage” that has met their needs since 1913. From the first night bus which ran in that year (below, outside Piccadilly Station) to the glorious
posters designed to lure pleasure seekers into the West End by the likes of HS Williamson (above 1924, and below, 1931), it looks as though there is going to
be much to see in the show. I hope to get along to a preview and report back. (Images courtesy LTMuseum).
