Great Bus Journeys of the World (no 1)
Jimmy has solved the problem. I found Jimmy over at Journeying, asked him the question and he left a comment on the end of the ‘Thingy on the bus’ post. It’s a camera mount which is provided by the people who make the bus. There isn’t a camera because the people who own the bus didn’t fix one.
Congratulations to Geoff who was almost right. What a perceptive chap.
On the topic of buses - here are some photos of my journey into town taken over the last few months.
I love going through Rusholme (the curry mile).
Here you can get the chop (red notice) whilst waiting for your taxi or booking a holiday.
This is the famous Canal Street in ‘the village’ . It would have been thronged with revellers at the weekend for the ‘Sparkle’ festival.
I don’t know why those trees are ‘wrapped’ unless Christo has visited Manchester I passed there yesterday and they have all been chopped down for yet another building project.
The arrow marks the college where I worked from 1982 to 1996. After this the lunatics took over the asylum. My laboratory on the top floor was turned into a penthouse so presumably someone removed that green stain on the ceiling made by an overenthusiastic student.
Why would they hang an advert for Peter Kay’s show over the Samaritan’s building?
I see Eric and Jimi are in town. Both are looking well.
And here’s the terminus, otherwise known as the Cheapskates’ Pleasuredome. Until 5 years ago it was the famous Lewis’s department store where I used to come with my mum to see Father Christmas.
Now we have Primark - so it’s Christmas every day - but it can’t be right can it?
