The Yellow Line

1960s

The Yellow Line

Era: 

  • 1933 - 1968
  • School busses parked outside the Queen's Park entrance to the Royal Ontario Museum.

    The ubiquitous sign of school visits

School busses are a constant at the ROM. In addition to the coach styling, notice the sign over the front doors. It depicts a man with a magnifying glass and a big question mark to advertise the special exhibition "Search and Research". This show called attention to the work of ROM curators as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations. It is the first documented instance of such banners. 

Do you remember The Tely?
