Members of the public using the Feilding Carrying Company's early bus transport. This was almost certainly photographed before World War I.

'Punch' Anderson of Haggitt Street, in October 1996, said that the vehicle had solid tyres and chain drive [in common with most commercial vehicles of the period]. The front lights were gas and there was a gig step for the passengers to use. It was probably the forerunner of a similar vehicle used by the company around 1925-26. It had a canvas cover which could be used over the back and was hired out to parties. Punch remembers his first trips to the beach being made in this vehicle.
