Publicity and poster collections

We hold the official publicity archives of Transport for Greater Manchester and our collection of 'Job Bags' holds the historical records of publicity material, together with examples of the finished products. Material ranges from leaflets to Bus Guides, bus interior coving posters and adverts to beer mats! There is also publicity material from manufacturers of vehicles, ticketing and other equipment, and from operators for holidays, tours and excursions, supported by posters for such activities.
