Henrion was paid 100 guineas for this design. London Transport’s publicity chief, Harold Hutchinson, liked the initial artwork (now in the London Transport Museum collection) but told Henrion that the historic vehicles had to be replaced with London Transport rolling stock. Despite stating that ‘there is simply no scope for argument about this’, Henrion ignored the instruction.
