Goodbye Piccadilly: The Role Of The London Bus In WWI

"‘Goodbye Piccadilly, farewell Leicester Square’, sang the troops in ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’. The London Transport Museum is marking the centenary of transport workers swapping the West End for the Western Front in the First World War. 1914, and the capital’s zappy new electric trains were emblematic of a whole nation’s dizzying voyage through modernity. This exhibition demonstrates that the capitalist boom which birthed competing omnibus and railway franchises (and with them some pretty dubious marketing, like the Underground’s posters boasting the network’s ‘temperate’ summer temperatures) was the selfsame destabilising boom which precipitated global conflict. (...)
Goodbye Piccadilly: From Home Front to Western Front runs until 8 March 2015 at the London Transport Museum, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7BB. Entrance fee included in the general admission charge: £15 adults, £11.50 concessions, free for under-17s. The exhibition is complemented with a number of events, and we’d particularly recommend a talk by Jerry White on London and Londoners in the Great War, 3 June, 7pm."
