Broadwater, Near Worthing, Sussex c1913

Broadwater, Near Worthing, Sussex c1913. In this photo by W. H. Applebee we can see an old horse-drawn bus. Within just a few years of this photo being taken all of the buses were replaced by more efficient motor buses. For a really good horse-drawn bus postcard you may be interested in this post - Putney Horse Bus. As always, click the postcard to enlarge.

  1. This is one amazing horse drawn bus....and just one horse pulling he or she is glad they were replaced!

  2. One of my favorite photos. Have you noticed the ghosts? There is a carriage without wheels behind the shoulder of the guy leaning on the railings, and there is a ghost going up the stairs of the bus. Of course these were due to the long exposure needed for early photographs. I like to think that the guy on the railings is out of breath having run along to be part of the photograph.
