Vintage British Trolley Bus Sign

I wish someone would make an affordable reproduction of this. Gorgeous.

SPECTACULAR trolley bus sign from Bournemouth, a large coastal resort town on the south coast of England. Cricket, Tennis, Circus, Carnival, doesn't get better than that! I've never seen a sign like this before. The sign is matte black and white printed on linen. The linen signs were most likely made in the late 1940's, early 1950's, quite possibly for the Festival of Britain (a mini World's Fair) in 1951. - Hotel silver, antiques, and vintage online catalogue
