On that date, The Beatles performed at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida.

Before the performance, they informed the city leaders that they would not perform if the audience was segregated (way to go, guys!) Wink

On this page (the link follows this post), you will see an overhead view of the Gator Bowl on that day; you will see dozens of buses lined up in several rows outside the stadium (from what I could see, it seemed to be mostly Old Look-style buses, along with some 4104's and also school buses)

Sticking out like a sore thumb in this gathering of now-classic buses, is one lone SCENICRUISER.

Certainly, if there were any bus fans in that area on that day, they sure had a lot of photogenic buses to snap!

It does make you wonder if any other pictures that day showed the lines of buses arriving and departing; I'm sure there must be some, somewhere.

The "Fab Four", great music, and vintage buses....it doesn't get much better than that....... Very Happy

"NYO"
