Best bus ride ever!
Dean, Janet, Sophie and I had the pleasure of riding on this vintage 1948 trolley bus today. It was in service to ferry people to and from the Dunbar Harvest Festival and we had perfect timing and caught a free ride! The driver was wearing a vintage uniform (complete with jacket and hat) and there were old ads inside the bus. I particularly liked the one for the Pirdle, a stylish form of underwear from the 60s. There was also a futuristic ad showing skytrain, sea bus and buses transporting their users into some unspecified future time period, perhaps 1987?
Our trusty bus gamely took us up the steep hill and we alighted with a spring in our step. Thank you, driver!
