This original 1930 poster for the London Underground features the crowd outside the stage door of the Theater Royal on Drury Lane, London's oldest theater. Budd, an artist and teacher, captures the spirit of street musicians and vendors vying for the attention of stylish theatergoers wearing their fedora and cloche hats.
The Underground frequently promoted the West-end theaters. It was not just their goal to promote transport but to enrich the quality of urban life in London.
