An outstanding Tramways poster for London Zoo by Mary Wright, 1925. Mary trained as an artist and illustrator at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in the early ‘20s. An exhibition of students’ work held in August 1925 regarded this design to be ‘one of the finest posters to be seen anywhere’. She is better known as an illustrator of children’s books published under her married name of Mary Shillabeer. A rare poster.
