double decker bus home


made in fever and dream in i think 1996
dream of double decker bus with brass bed

apurvas first year bus project: documentation

all my buslove
and ranjits too
spent clicking photos using my bad cellphone camera and his good one
while somewhere deep in apurvas cupboard probably lay sleeping this labour of love
with the foldout conductor

and the amazing ticket box, the metal one that you dont see these days.
that apu too swears always fascinated him.
all the details lovingly drawn..

the conductor
ticket box
that space near the exit steps with the niches and the pipe handle and gorgeous details..

and for all those like myself who ever wanted to decode the numbers on the ticket....
