Under an exclusive license agreement with the Museum of Vancouver (MOV), we have been making a unique series of decorative pillows for their MOV Retail Collection. This image is taken directly from one of the bus scrolls that were once used on Vancouver’s electric trolley buses in the early 1950s. At the time, bus drivers used a hand crank to rotate the information on the scroll to indicate along which route the bus was traveling.
From the Museum of Vancouver's Retail Collection, the Vancouver Bus Scroll Throw Pillow features an original bus scroll that was once used on Vancouver’s electric trolley buses in the early 1950s. Printed on front and back, the text on this vintage style throw pillow refers to bus routes that would have been displayed on the front of the bus. Made from a remarkably soft indoor/outdoor polyester fabric, this pillow has the look and feel of a natural cotton/linen blend. Designed and manufactured by Pillow Decor under license from the Museum of Vancouver.
