To see in London: The London Transport Museum
Published: Friday 16th of October 2009
A new exhibition, titled Suburbia, opened at the London Transport Museum this week, exploring how public transport helped to create the myths and identity of suburbia and how it has featured in the cultural fabric of London and Britain over the last 100 years.
The exhibition looks at how transport has shaped the suburbs and uses a series of unique displays to celebrate suburban lifestyle, architecture, design and popular culture.
Previously unseen posters, photographs, early publicity material, signs and maps will give a historic context, supported by film and interviews with suburbanites past and present.
Suburbia displays complement the museum's permanent gallery which tells the story of the early 20th century Suburban Dream.
The London Transport museum is located at the corner of Covent Garden Piazza and is close to the Covent Garden, Charing Cross and Leicester Square tube stops.
Covent Garden is just a 20 minute walk, or eight minute tube journey, from London shopping on Oxford Street.
