A beautiful poster in rich autumn hues designed by Walter E Spadbery in 1924 and published by the Underground Electric Railway Company. ‘The Rich Repose of Autumn’, a quote from the poetical works of Samuel Rogers, promotes bus routes by London General to green areas in and around London to enjoy.
Walter E Spadbery designed posters for the Underground Group and London Transport between 1912 and 1944.
Walter E Spradbery was born in East Dulwich, London. He studied at Walthamstow Art School, then worked as an art teacher. He regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy, and worked as a watercolourist, linocut artist and poster designer. His poster designs were produced mainly for London Transport, but he also designed some posters for British Rail and the LNER (London North Eastern Railway). A lifelong pacifist, he served in the Royal Army Medical Corps during the First World War and was also an official war artist. A memorial exhibition was held at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, London in 1970.
