1958 Citroen U55 Citirama Bus – See Paris In Style

I got to Paris fifty years too late. In the late fifties and early sixties, the way to really see the city was through the countless windows of Citirama’s Citroen U55 Currus buses. How’s that a for a contrast to London’s old double-deckers of that vintage? France was the avant-garde, and these buses built by coachbuilder Currus went out of their way to prove the point.

Flash Rogers would approve, especially that bowsprit (?) Just don’t get on in a heatwave in August. Air conditioning was not part of the avant-garde.
