Colour photograph of a green double-decker bus at the pier-head car park in around 1975. On the side of the bus are the words ‘London Country’, plus a long Caledonian MacBrayne banner printed with the names of many west-coast islands including Tiree, and there are several items of laundry hanging in the windows suggesting that this is a long-distance tour bus. The old ticket office is visible on the left, and note the lack of buildings in the background on the right.
