This is an authentic London bus destination blind as used on classic double decker Routemaster buses. These destinations will be familiar to expats and visitors to London and will certainly make a statement and bring back fond memories.

One of the things that makes these blinds instantly recognisable is the iconic London Transport ‘Johnston’ font which has been used to standardise all of London Transports signage since 1933

Roll bus destination blinds first appeared on London Buses in the 1930s.  London Transport originally made their own blinds by hand using screen printed paper glued to dutch linen.  By the late 1980s, stronger modern materials were used to create the blinds so these are becoming very rare.

These bus binds are offered in the following formats (refer to photos for examples of each format):

Format 1: Unframed

Format 2: Framed without mat

Format 3: Framed with mat

Please note all bus binds are framed to order.  Please allow at least 15 working days for delivery.
