Being a self-confessed bus nut I have surprisingly few photos of “me with bus”. At the time of this photo I was a sweet and innocent 16 year old gricer (hence the notebook) creeping around St Margarets’ Bus Station (I was later to call it SMBS when I worked at Midland Fox) in Leicester.
Little did I know that this particular bus with me in the photo would end up taking a similar journey to me. In 1997 I moved to France. This ex London Transport Metropolitan also moved to France the year before me, to Strasbourg to be exact, Leicester’s twin city.
For all I know it could still be there, but I did find out a few details about it via Flickr.
