Between September 1973 and November 1974 I lived in a double-decker bus, reg. JRR 404, better known as the Free Photographic Omnibus. It was my home, my travelling darkroom and gallery. Together we travelled 10,000 miles around England making a photographic record during a time of great social change. Every week I ran a free portrait session in a different town centre. The journey was funded by sponsorship — private, commercial and public — and received two Arts Council of Great Britain awards. This is the story of that adventure.
