Visitors to this website will be familiar with the work of guest contributor Peter Newman who travelled all around the UK in the 60s and 70s photographing buses and lorries in everyday service.  Peter edited the London Omnibus Traction Society's monthly journal The London Bus for 3½ years in the early 1970s, and he has delved into his archives and generously provided many of the fascinating photos of AECs featured in AEC 4 Wheel Lorries, Regent, Regal, LT Service Vehicles, London RLHs.

Here is a selection of various AEC types photographed by Peter.
