Three Buses in Southampton City Centre
Taken in April 1972, this photo shows three buses in Civic Centre Road in the City Centre. The red and cream vehicle is a Leyland Atlantean with East Lancs 76-seater bodywork operated by Southampton Corporation Transport, whilst the two green buses are owned by Hants and Dorset Motor Services. The green vehicle behind the red and cream bus is a Daimler Fleetline with Roe 74-seater bodywork, whilst the bus in the distance is a Bristol Lodekka with Eastern Coach Works bodywork. The Civic Centre can just be seen to the right of the photo. Bus services in Southampton are now operated by First Hampshire and Dorset Ltd and Solent Blue Star.
