Looking back... Cambus/ECOC allover advert liveries - part 2

In this two part Looking back... photo special we are taking a look back at some of the interesting allover advert liveried buses that were operated by Cambus and Eastern Counties.

Whilst not to everyones taste they certainly looked very colourful and were superior to the modern day allover advert liveries where the windows are more often than not covered with contravision.

The photographs used in this two part special are from David Bell's extensive bus photograph archive.
