Looking back... Great Yarmouth Borough Transport in 1975

We are heading to East Norfolk for the latest installment of our Looking back... series, with six excellent colour photographs we look at some of Great Yarmouth Borough Transport's interesting fleet in 1975 - all photographs used in this post were kindly supplied by David Bell/D.G Bell Collection.

Most of the photographs were taken at what was called the Regal bus stand which was used for most departures before the advent of the Market Gates bus station, the remainder were taken at Caister Road bus depot.
