This small poster shows The the Crosstown Bus of Nelson , B.C. ( later Penticton) posing in front of their vehicle.  The picture was taken in an Alley in Vancouver.  The Nelson Daily News in about 1968 did a feature article on the Band.  The group moved from Nelson to Vancouver graduating from a High School Band to  something more... I think the front page article was titled "A Magical Mystery Tour"
