Bus Scroll Necktie: All Detroit Routes, Silk

$ 45.00

Detroit Bus Scroll Silk Tie. Another from our series of Detroit neighborhood and landmark-specific neckties. Shown: black on cream; platinum on black.

Our new transit destination illustrations are painstakingly adapted from an early 1980's bus destination scrolling sign. We have purchased original, 40 foot long vintage bus rolls, photographed, joined and made large-format transparencies and silkscreens for each route name. All processes are done right in house, in our Detroit studio located in Historic Eastern Market! We have faithfully reconstructed these early pieces of Detroit transit history from tattered originals. Long before the LED signs you see on modern trains and buses, these hand-printed linen and vellum signs were installed on a roll and cranked manually by the bus operator to change destination names.

Navigate your city with "Ties to Detroit." Perfect for newcomers, ex-pats and long-time Detroiters alike.

*Please note there is some translucency in the platinum printing on black - to be faithful to the appearance of the original sign.

Make this design uniquely yours by choosing custom ink and fabric colors.
