SCT '61

This Edinburgh Guy Arab III saloon 739, ESG652, has a Metro-Cammell body and already appears on SCT61, but this picture shows it has been restored a long time, taking part in the 1976 Trans-Pennine Run. I always looked forward to the Scottish entries as they were both well-restored and interesting and I admired the owners for bringing them such a long way at not inconsiderable cost.
739 has just passed through a district of Todmorden known as Salford and is approaching the town centre. In the background is the crossing over the then-derelict Rochdale Canal, which has since been restored.
