|In attendance on the day was this 1965 Marshall bodied Leyland Leopard BUF122C|
The event was centred on the area close to the pier from where a network of free bus services operated using former Southdown vehicles.
It was quite unusual to see the forecourt of the depot in Library Place dominated by the green and cream of the Southdown liveried buses
As you will have seen from my earlier posts, I didn't attend the event although my daughter sent most of the photos which accompany this article
