Electric Tram parade poster

We raided the museum archive to create this poster which uses the lettering and forms of the tram destination name plates – plates that are still in use today. The lettering on the plates were created over the years by workers in the repair workshop and carry all the traits of hand-made lettering made by people who were largely mechanics – hence the idiosyncratic nature of the letterforms with their unusual stencil bridges.
