Description:

Tram poster for the Metropolitan Cleaning Company. The text on the top in capitals tells the name of the company (Fővárosi Takarító Vállalat), below it the address is visible: Budapest V. Rosenberg Házaspár street 21. and the phone number. The text on the bottom informs the audience that the company sends a cleaning lady, arranges major cleanings, cleaning windows and worm clearing. The design is very clever and decorative. In the foreground there is a broom and it is in motion, thus it is just done with a part of the cleaning. The ready part is perfectly clean and the part to be done is black. The clean part is a beautiful apartment furnished in the style of the 1960s. The sofa, the armchair the coffee table and the colours...Everything is really sixties. The apartment is bright and the viewer can clearly see the contrast between that and the black 'dirty' parts. A simple, yet decorative piece
