    spotted this by chance when taking nanny back to Paradise St to catch her bus this morning


    had intended to travel part way with her as far as Speke to do the SLBs, but Home Bargains had sold me duff batteries so I took them back and got last of town SLBs instead. Which was fortunate as it meant I got to see this lovely old Leyland in Williamson Sq
    Proud Scouser, with a dabbling of Welsh and Irish.

    bore yourself silly at my Flickr page...anorak central!

    I spotted a double-decker on The Strand, decorated to advertise "Our Day Out-The Musical".

    I saw a decorated bus for 'Under the Mud' (Garston DVD). I also saw a bendy-bus, for the first time in Liverpool, heading into Paradise Bus Station (Not in Service).

    And Another! (Going too fast to catch it properly, though...)



    The film's quite hard to catch too, but isn't bad either, given that it was written - I am given to understand - by a bunch of scallies from Garston...

    Its not dark,the glass is like a two way mirror it lets light in fom the outside but you can't see inside.

    Personally I find them grotesque.
