I took this photograph at the Heaton Park, Manchester at the Trans Lancs Historic Vehicle Rally in September 1995.
From the left there's a 1964 AEC Routemaster in the livery of Clydeside Scottish Omnibuses Ltd, a 1963 Manchester Corporation Daimler CVG6K, a 1958 Manchester Corporation Leyland Titan PD2/34, a 1957 Lancashire United Transport Guy Arab IV and the corner of a 1968 Leyland Atlantean PDR1/1 in SELNEC livery.
Here's a view I took later looking down on the five vehicles, The Leyland Atlantean (HVM901F) isn't listed in the programme of the event, which has this to say about the other four:

M20          AEC Routemaster, Park Royal H64R, 1964                    ALD913B
                    London Transport RM1913
                    Entered by     Messrs Bentley, Cannon & Worsnop, Halifax
                    This vehicle is presented in the livery of Clydesdale Scottish, with whom it saw
                    service for three years following withdrawal by London Transport in 1986.
                    Purchased for preservation in 1991.

L15            Daimler CVG6K, Netro-Cammell H65R, 1963               4632VM
                    Manchester 4632
                    Entered by     D.J.Talbot, Eccles
                    This vehicle was one of the last Daimler buses purchased by Manchester
                    Corporation and was withdrawn in 1978 and was secured for preservation
                    after an extended life,

L13            Leyland PD2/34, Burlingham H64R, 1958                     TNA520
                    Entered by     J.Crankshaw, Meltham, Huddersfield
                    This vehicle is unusual in that it originally entered service with a fully
                    automatic gearbox. It was later converted to semi-automatic, which is
                    itself unusual.

L14            Guy Arab IV, Northern Counties, 1957                            116JTD
                    Lancashire United Transport 21
                    Entered by     J.Crankshaw, Meltham, Huddersfield
                    A representative of the many similar vehicles which performed yeoman
                    service for the company.
This is another view of the five buses that I've cropped from another photograph.
