It just shows really how basic the buses were. Can you imagine doing a shift in winter in the open cab? I can see more of the bus and tram stop now.
Brian Walbey: Very different to our modern buses, and of course trams had open driving areas just like that bus bottom left.

I can rememberr Virol being advertised everwhere. I used to hate it
Brian Walbey: My Mum gave me Virol when I was young, I quite liked it, it was the Syrup of Figs I didn't like!
They are very convincing replicas Brian
Brian Walbey: Inceed very well done and they cover a lot of miles every day.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, there is so much to see, I've only scratched the surface as yet of what I will be showing over forthcoming months.
