U.K. links

Alan and Geoff's Old Merthyr Tydfil - Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales is my mother's home town and I have many wonderful childhood memories of the place from the 1950's and 60's. The town has changed a lot since that time, but Alan George and Geoff Matsell have assembled a huge collection of photographs of the old Merthyr Tydfil dating back to the late 1800's. These include several pages of old bus and rail pictures. Very interesting, even for people who don't know Merthyr.
Busman in Cambridge - The Busman (Richard Haughey) presents news, views, a pictorial bus history, and more from England's No.1 (or No.2, depending on your point of view) university town. I particularly liked the Bristol LS and MW pics which have now disappeared from the site unfortunately.

In the last couple of years John has rediscovered his camera and is adding new pictures from south-east London to the site.
