Billy Brown’s Guide to London Transport

Here is another fine example of the Billy Brown character, invented by cartoonist David Langdon OBE, giving advice on using public transport in London.

Published in the Bromley & District Times, 27th December 1940

Billy Brown of London Town

The safest travelling in town
Is not too good for Billy Brown.
He’s much too sensible and knowing
To jump down off a bus that’s going.
Especially in blackout house
Or when the kerb is wet with showers
On these occasions Billy B
Goes by the slogan ‘Wait and See’.

Printed for London Transport
