Mostly black and white vintage bus scrolls are now used as art for walls and furniture.
Vintage graphics, including bus scrolls, are one my favorite forms of art. Advertising, postcards, labels, I’ve collected, framed and decorated with them for years. It wasn’t until I was browsing through one of my favorite blogs that I discovered bus scrolls.
Antique dealer and fellow San Francisco Bay Area resident Lynn Goldfinger-Abram’s blog, Paris Hotel Boutique, has always been one of my favorite reads and her online store of vintage items can easily turn a browser into a buyer. This San Francisco scroll was one I was especially drawn to because of the red highlighting.
Another one, ca. 1940-50’s, is made of a cloth-type material, the roll sign features 8 stops in San Francisco and measures a whopping 54.5″ h. x 26.5″ w.
Lynn ships her scrolls unframed but you can find them already framed, like the 1950’s London bus scroll I saw on 1st Dibs. Australian-English bus scrolls are also around. And, replica scrolls can be found with a quick search of the Internet.
