Description

Routemaster Bus - 5x7 London Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

The subject of this London greeting card is a classic Routemaster bus. I think for a lot of us, when we think of London double-decker buses, this is the type that immediately springs to mind. Most of these vintage buses are in private service these days but a handful are still used for London's heritage bus route. It's possible you were unaware of London's heritage bus route. I know I was until I saw this classic Routemaster bus rumbling its way up the Strand.

The classic London view seen on this card is where Fleet Street becomes The Strand - Temple Bar - the border of the old city of London. So this was a great spot to capture an iconic piece of London history. The border dragon is sitting atop a monument to Queen Victoria. This is old London in a nutshell to me.

The image on this card has a vintage color treatment in appreciation for its classic subject. This was also inspired by how much this red bus scene reminds me of old slides I once saw of my uncle's trip to London.
