Behind the Morris Minor, James Stewart peers out of his Rear Window on the Hitchcock film poster. A Bedford OB bus is dropping off passengers at the cinema, while behind the bus comes another Bedford, in the form of a tipper. In the distance, a Jowett Bradford van waits to turn right. Print dimensions 18cm x 24cm (approximately 7″ x 91/2″) plus a caption. This print is part of the Passage of Time series – a set of four fascinating pictures depicting a typical British high street over four decades, from the 1930s to the 60s. It’s not only the vehicles and costumes that changes with the Passage of Time, but the posters outside the cinema and newsagents illustrate the popular films and headlines of each period.
