Community Photo Challenge: Transportation


This poor old wreck of a bus, long since reduced to scrap metal, had been hauled to a piece of waste ground just outside Stornoway in March 2008. In its better days, it would carry the fair maidens of the islands of Lewis and Harris on the annual carnival parade. The phrase "Gals on Motors" is a pun on the name of one of the bus operators in Lewis, who are called Galson Motors.
