1950s Polychrome Print Tilting A Bus
I just love this 1950s polychrome print Tilting A Bus. The bus in question is a London AEC Regent (1934) and, yes, they really did tilt the bus using ropes to test its stability! It’s good to know just how stable these Double Decker buses are. Watch this You Tube Video of ‘The Bus Tilting Test’: it’s amazing!
This print would suit any lover of Vintage Bus ephemera. As well as being an interesting subject matter, it has great colours. The print is overlaid to an ivory cream backboard of 1mm thickness and 10 x 12 inches dimension using acid free fixative.
The mounted print is overlaid with a (slightly textured) Arqadia mount board of 1.4mm thickness and matching dimensions, with a brilliant white colour stabilised core and a 45º bevelled-edge, which features a 2mm overlap.
The whole ensemble is supplied ready for the purchaser to fit into a picture frame of their choosing.
