These are just great photographs, thanks for posting them :!:
I think those ads look great and just love that Holden taxi in the photo of m/o.844 :!: :shock:

I love seeing the old signs - how long has it been since the Berger Paint logo looked like that and little would it have been known when these pics were taken how much trouble Hardie's Fibrolite would cause later on.

Yes Andrew,the ads and background visuals make interesting comparisons with today. What about Ern Jones with his Vauxhall car dealership and is that a few future transport enthusiasts peering in the window of the "HOBBY HUT' shop just behind m/o 4227.

There are some Chester Hill photos in Leon Batmans collection at
http://www.home.railscene.com/batman/bu ... e0004.html 2
http://www.home.railscene.com/batman/bu ... e0006.html 2
http://www.home.railscene.com/batman/buses_3/page.html 1
http://www.home.railscene.com/batman/bu ... e0003.html 4 some seem duplicates of ones above

Not to be confused with Coffs Harbour Bus lines where photos use very similar names.
