1948

Thank you to Ed Thomson for providing this photograph, taken at a time before Edinburgh's bus station was built, and buses used to depart from stances around St Andrew Square.

Ed writes:

"Here is a pre war Leyland Coronation type SMT bus leaving a snowy St Andrew Square for Airdrie on January 22, 1948."

Today, St Andrew Square is surrounded by parked cars, and a one-way system operates around St Andrew Square, traffic moving in the opposite direction to this bus.
