The Underground Electric Railways Company published this beautiful poster in 1931. It was designed by Herry Perry, who produced a significant number of posters for the Underground Group, 54 in total. The blackberry season starts in July and continues into early November and this poster uses autumnal colours to represent this. Posters like this were designed to remind Londoners of the abundance of countryside and parks surrounding them. There is no specific travel information, just the suggestion of a trip to pick blackberries.
Heather Perry designed posters for the Underground Group and London Transport between 1928 and 1937.
