Year Of The Bus – Croydon Sculpture Trail – The Launch

On a sunny December day, my buses joined the trail in Croydon after a little press launch.  The 'Croydon Layers' and 'Surrey Street Market' sculptures hit the streets!

Surrey Street Market

The first bus of mine, that we came to on our mini tour of Croydon, was 'Surrey Street Market'. It's nestling in Matthew's Yard (rather appropriately), directly outside the cafe/arts venue of the same name. It's also a potato's throw from the market itself.

Croydon Layers

The next stop was my bus 'Croydon Layers', which can be found directly outside the doors to the Council offices, in Mint Walk.

Transport for London have also produced some slick photographs of the buses, taken under studio conditions. They look great, and really make the colours pop out.
