The End of an Era

Salisbury said farewell to it's bus station today after over 70 years of service to the city.  To commemorate this historic event, Wilts & Dorset Bus Company held a Vintage Day with up to 20 vintage buses running free rides around the city.  Vehicles including Bristols, Leylands, Daimlers, Routemasters and even the New Bus for London were on show on a rather wet and windy day, which however didn't stop a number of people taking to the open-top tour bus!

Locals and enthusiasts young and old, braved the weather to catch a glimpse of some of the vehicles which were commonplace in Salisbury over the course of 70 years.

A long time before becoming a professional photographer I had a brief stint as a London bus driver so seeing some of these fantastic vehicles especially the Routemaster and New Bus for London in Salisbury today was quite an experience.
