Morden Herry Perry, 1929 Decorative poster maps were used to promote London suburbs, both as day-trip destinations and desirable places to live. The wooded landscape around Morden in this poster is peppered with a motley mix of kings and queens, dog-walkers and day-trippers, historic sites and inviting taverns. Posters of this kind helped promote an aspirational image of London’s semi-rural suburbs.
