Scottish National Gallery bus blind canvas reusable tote bag

Scottish National Gallery bus blind canvas reusable tote bag


Lightweight cotton canvas tote bag featuring a bus blind image of the Scottish National Gallery sign.

Bus blind or destination sign or destination indicator/destination blind is a sign mounted on the front, side or rear of a bus that displays the vehicle's route number and destination, or the route's number and name on transit systems using route names.

Each destination has been created from an archive of original linen corporation bus blind rolls dating back from the 1920s to the 1950s. This unique and unusual typeface, originally used to display stops on trams and trolleybuses, has been carefully conserved and recreated for you.

We've taken care to preserve the special feeling of the original blinds with this retro typeface which is reflected in the wear and tear over their many years in public service.

This cotton canvas tote is perfect for your weekly shopping.
