Exhibition Review : Come out to live – come in to play

The exhibit featured in the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture features posters that were actually shown to promote the use of the London Transport System , particularly the London Underground . The posters were used back then to promote living in the suburbs of London and to use the railway system to connect to city life . In simpler terms the posters served as a means of encouraging the people of London to move to the suburbs because through the Underground , they are still able [banner_entry_middle]

Viewing the exhibit allows people to understand the historical and cultural value of the London Underground .

I liked the choice of posters for not only do they depict the culture of the 1920s , all the posters are pieces that introduce modern art

I personally view the visit not just as an art trip but more of a historical trip . I became more interested in knowing the beginnings of London ‘s suburbs and how the importance of the London Underground came about . Through the posters , I was able to understand better the culture in London and why it seems as if more people are drawn to the suburbs
