Yellow Bus at the Lansdowne
Bournemouth Corporation buses - later Yellow Buses - had a unique 4-section destination display. Specifically the bottom right hand opening indicated which of a variety of options the bus would use between the Lansdowne and The Square. This was colour coded so that you could tell as the bus approached even before the small lettering was legible. This bus is on its way to Somerford has come up via Bath Road, indicated by a red display.
Behind to the right is the eponymous Lansdowne Hotel.
This is one of a series of views featuring buses in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. LinkExternal link
