Poetry on the Buses

From 2012, Stagecoach UK have agreed to display posters showing Soutar poems on their buses. The posters were designed by Deborah Trayhurn, assisted on the project by Fiona Thackeray and Ajay Close, all Soutar Friends. We are grateful to the Trustees of the National Library of Scotland for permission to use the texts, and to the A K Bell Library in Perth for helping to produce the posters. The first two in use are illustrated below.
