A North Western Leyland bus travelling along South Parade on
its way to Bonsall. Unfortunately the number plate is unreadable.
North Western had a monopoly over the local routes, having
taken them all over by mid 1933. The bus here is very similar
to one owned by Hands, linked right, although seems to
have slightly wider tyres. More buses of the same design
can be seen in the 1935 photograph of the choir parade
(also linked right).
Just above the two cars on the left is a shop sign on one
of the Parade buildings. Frederick Bentley had a china shop
and fancy repository there and
his daughter designed knitting patterns.
