GW Hunter, one of the performers featured on this poster, wrote much of his own material. His compositions were largely topical songs or parodies of other popular songs from the time. He wrote ‘Riding On Top Of An Omnibus’, which is featured in the Sing Along section of this site. A comical, anecdotal piece, it recounts a bus journey spent looking into the houses lining the route, and revealing the secret lives of the unwitting homeowners.
