Hi Trojan, just to make sure I am in the right place was it where the mural is now on this pic ?http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?reso ... fier=10066

I'd spotted the rear half of the bus on the right hand side of the picture that looks up Vicar Lane away from the Guinness clock itself, and identified it as one of the famous centre-entrance AECs. I had wondered what it was doing there, but Blakey, as always, knows the answer. Another little piece slots into the historical jigsaw.

[quotenick="SPARTACUS"]I always remember the Guiness Clock at the Corn Exchange. Used to meet the missus there regularly. So did everyone else it seemed !Quite a popular lass, your missus, then?

It was an enormous display - very impressive - and occupied more than 50% of the gable end of the buildings.If someone can kindly suggest how I can post it I will do it straight away Trojan has kindly offered an explanation of what's wrong but to no avail yet. I've scanned it already and saved it as normal in My Pictures.
