Glasgow Renfield Street buses

Two lines of traffic led by a Magic Bus 162 to Baillieston and a white van cross the lights on Renfield Street Glasgow. Sunlight shines directly from the south up the street, which rises up at its north end, overlooked by the offices of the Evening Times and Sunday Herald.

With bus privatisation and the abolition of municipal fleets, most UK cities lost an important part of their heritage and identity - though not Edinburgh, which still has a locally-owned bus service. In 50 years time will people look back at this scene with nostalgia?
