Pennine Heritage: Launched in 1979 to promote environmental conservation plus economic and social enhancement of the South Pennines, this website is the home of the Pennine Horizons Digital Archive, which contains thousands of historic photos.

The PSV Circle: The PSV Circle was formed over sixty years ago and provides accurate and up to date information on all aspects of bus and coach operation in Great Britain and Ireland, and in other parts of the world where British vehicles are in use.

SCT’61: This website started in April 1999 and since then it's grown from a simple site showing a few bus photos taken in Southend to a very large collection of photos covering UK buses, trolleybuses and trams from the sixties and before.
