i Think the bus in the first photo is a Bedford VAS (looks to small for an SB).

Volvo B59 1207 in one of the first AOA liveries, advertising Aussie Bonds. Spot the location? Note the AEC Swift on the other side of the road.


Henley Beach Rd, corner of Burnley St, just before the S bend.

Bingo! Give this man the chocolates. I thought it might have taken longer to go off. The AEC Swift in the background would be displaying Route 28L which terminated in Henley South.

Great pics there steve, glad someone has these and is able to scan them to save them for the future, would be a great loss to loose images such as these.

Cant wait to see more :)

The shot of the Mercs testing the O-Bahn - is that the bridge over the river between Paradise & Klemzig? If it is it's certainly changed over time. Look at the water level compared to now (or even 5-10 years ago). Great shots Mayor.
Time to get bus priority and tram priority through the city and suburbs.
Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.

I think I've seen that yellow bus in somone's backyard when going to Noarlunga on the 722F as both have the same front and probably the same length.

There were plenty of them, so could be any from the many that were in the EDSA fleet at that time.

Not after yesterday and today's rain. The Torrens River and Torrens Lake is back to capacity now.

Why does 1502 have the exhaust sticking out the top of the bus?
