This beautiful 1920’s Leyland Bus is kept in the Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre in West Sussex, UK.
From my original photograph, in order to gain the image, which I thought the bus deserved, I had to do much, tedious editing work. I hope you approve :O)

I live in sunny Southampton,England with my wife June. Retired, I am able to dedicate more time to my hobbies and interests, which are, photography, photo manipulation, cooking, gardening, reading, sightseeing, chess, painting, a variety of music and computing.
Up until I was fifteen, I was known as Les, and as I lived in Hooton in the Wirral, I became known as Les from Hooton, hence my pseudonym “Hootonles”. Since my leaving Hooton I have preferred to use my middle Christian name John.
