If you can cope with all the adverts and annoying pop ups on The Herald web site there is a nice little feature with some excellent photos of Bretonside Bus Station over the years, with a few I havent seen before.
Over the last few months there has been a lot of news about the investments being made in redeveloping Plymouth, writes Cate Vaughton, volunteer archive assistant at South West Image Bank.

The bus station has been a hub not only for those making journeys both locally and further afield, but has also had an eclectic array of shops, cafes and nightclubs situated within its underground location over the years.
Alas, the bus station has in recent years become slightly unkempt but, despite this, many will have fond memories of the White Rabbit and the Last Shop Standing. Soon these will become just stories about Plymouth told nostalgically to younger generations.
