A London Transport diesel-engined 97-horsepower OM-NI-BUS!


I have to assume that I bought the card for a reason, but it has been languishing in my "postcards to be sent" drawer for a long time.  Then, as I was looking for something completely different, I found the following mini-sheet with its se-tenant stamps (issued 2001).  I have no idea whatever where they came from but they do suit the card very well.



The reason for the title of the post is a song known probably only to UK residents of a certain age but it too fits very nicely with the theme so I couldn't resist:


I had intended to show something completely different which arrived in the post yesterday from the Royal Mail.  Two of them in fact so I suppose they must have a surplus.


It's an attractive design though it looks as if it's been cut off on the left.  In fact it continues over on the envelope flap.



This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"

  1. I have that Diamond Jubilee cover (there seems to be quite a few of these sort in the cheap boxes at stamp sales for some reason)

    I love that postcard - if you want someone to send it to, I would be delighted to have it in my bus and tram collection. An exchange would be willingly sent to you.

  3. I like the bus postcard. I think the bus stamps look strange where they are sliced in the middle.

  4. As soon as I read the title I was singing along - how nostalgic.

  5. I agree with @Postcardy: it must be strange to cut the stamps!

  9. Oh, I love the Classic Bus postcard and stamps. We finally visited the Isle of Wight Bus Museum in August and loved it.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
