Aberdeen's Buses 2018


The 'Granite City' is a term often used for Aberdeen, Scotland's grand city situated on its north-eastern coast. It gets its name from the spectacular buildings built out of granite. We begin with some archive cine film from the late Bob Webster's collection. Filmed in the late 1960s & 70s we see the buses of the erstwhile Aberdeen Corporation going about their daily business. We see buses from the long lost manufacturers of AEC, Daimler and Leyland. This then brings us nicely to the contemporary bus scene of 2018. The main operators you will see are Firstbus and Stagecoach. Filming locations include Union Street, Castle Street, Market Street, Guild Street and Union Square Bus Station. Some of these locations can still be recognised from the cine film footage. The second part of this DVD features the celebrations for 100 years of Dunfermline Bus Depot. This was an open day event put on by Stagecoach East Scotland on 19th May 2018. Our cameras were at the depot to record the festivities.
