South Yorkshire 81, TWY8, is the unique and much loved Albion, and is seen en-route from Manchester to Harrogate during the Trans-Pennine Rally.
In those days, this was one of the most popular and well-attended transport events on the calendar.
Luckily, the traffic lights at this junction with Ilkley Road (then a through road before the by-pass was built) had held it at red, so I was able to capture cleanly it as it pulled away.
Behind it is the still-operational "Florence", the Cumbria Classic Coaches AEC Regal. The Mason's Arms is now a private house.
