It was the R7/R7A, later designated S7, renumbered to S53 sometime in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Currently the S53 & S93.

Many thanks, Dan, for the helpful clarification. I completely missed the route number, though I could even now imagine each turn of the route until I would transfer to a R-102. Of course, I wish I had taken more photos in that era!
