I visited a museum today, the Oxford Bus Museum & Morris Motors Museum, Station Yard, Long Hanborough, Oxfordshire, OX29 8LA.
My real interest in visiting was to see the sections covering Morris Motors.
While I was there I enjoyed a trip on the same type of bus I took to go to school. I used to get the No.1 bus from Oxford Station and to the Glanville Road stop on Cowley Road.
On those journeys back in the 1970s I occasionally thought of being a bus driver. So I was interested to see what I could have been earning and the increases over 20 years outpaced the tax deducted.
This graph and the data was all extracted from payslips from the period.
