Christmas in Cambridge
Sydney Street in December 1980 with Eastern Counties FLF450 on local service 186. Judging by Street View, this thoroughfare is a lot tidier now, with rather less character, no above the shop clocks and no FLFs either! This particular bus went on to be a staff bus with Matchbox at Rochford, later emigrating to Slovenia. Pentax SP1000/50mm Ilford FP4
The Eagle, Cambridge
This famous coaching inn is several hundred years old. In WWII pilots from local air bases burnt their squadron insignia with candles and lighters onto the ceiling of the bar whose window can be seen. It is still there as a memorial to them.
Walter 'Snowy' Farr MBE (b. 1919; d. Oakington, Cambridgeshire, 8 March 2007) was a prominent and colourful charity fundraiser well known to the people of Cambridge, England. A familiar sight in the city's Market Square and Lion Yard/Petty Cury slope over several decades, Snowy Farr collected many thousands of pounds for The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. In recognition of his efforts, he received an MBE from the Prince of Wales in November 1995.
