Stuart Little's recent Edinburgh bus rally photograph prompted me to post this view, taken on the Huddersfield Centenary Rally in 1983, to commemorate one hundred years of municipal public transport. I believe nineteen buses are visible here and they are listed below as far as I can identify. The late Bob Mack will have taken a very similar photograph to this as he was stood on the platform of the bus next to me, only I've forgotten what it was.
