A Modernist bus shelter - photograph

In the 1930s, London Transport's poster campaigns, station designs and even its bus shelters reflected the Modernist style that is often identified as Art Deco. London Transport contributed greatly to bringing the Modernist style into everyday London life. This unusual bus stop was designed by the architect Charles Holden. On top is what is referred to as a flagpole roundel.
