Hi - I've been meaning to add stuff to this fantastic site for ages but it's just been about finding the time. I'll start with some tickets I sold on ebay a year or so ago but I still have the jpegs to archive if not the actual items...
Two Hacienda Bus Tickets circa 1987-9
This service was offered to all punters (on entry to the club, if I recall, first-come-first-served) for a private minibus that took you home at the allotted time - these particular ones were for 2am on 23 April, according to the biro scribblings, and I've guessed at 1987 as the approximate year but it could have been 1988 or 1989 (by 1990 I was working at the venue so I would have been walking home in daylight most probably). I think it cost 50p and it took you to your front door which, for me at the time, would have been either Fallowfield or Whalley Range. There was also a separate 'women only' bus service, commissioned for the safety of female clubbers and gig-goers, that went on for several years more than this one I think. What a great service that's practically unheard of today!!!
Happy times :-)
