Sepia Saturday

2015.01W-63

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt featured buses and transportation as a theme. If you think about it, it’s amazing all the various conveyances used to help us get around. Here’s a few I found on Flickr Commons.

    The woman driver has quite a distinctive seat.

    Coral Gables was started earlier than I thought. When we were enlisted for a sales tour we got to ride a small airplane in 63!

    Some neat pictures here. I’ve ridden on the top of a 2-story bus. Unfortunately, not in London. Only in an amusement park. But it was still interesting & fun. In my younger days I could do most of the thrill rides; but by my mid 20s, I could no longer go on roller coaster or spinning type rides. So double-decker buses & merry-go-rounds, antique or futuristic trains, submarines that didn’t really go all the way under water & etc., & the shoppes & shows became my fun things to do while my husband took the kids on all the scary stuff.

      I can’t tolerate the spinning rides either, but a double-decker bus is fun. Even without the spinning rides most amusement parks have plant to amuse.

    I hadn’t realized that London got into the double-deckers quite so early. Interesting.

    Why on earth would they install a wicker seat? Surely it wouldn’t last very long.
