Looking back... Cambridge in 1990 - part 1

We've often included photographs from Cambridge in our Looking back... series and they usually seem to go down well with readers, so for our latest two-parter we are travelling back to 1990 with a selection of photographs showing buses operating in the city, featured in this part are Cambus, Premier Travel and Whippet.

As with many of our historical reminisces the photographs are once again supplied by David Bell, we thank him for keeping us supplied with photos from his wonderful archives!
