On Camera Plymouth OCO 511

So much has changed...

Plymouth CT111 (by Lady Wulfrun)
From Lady Wulfruns collection. One for the Plymouth purists. Another acquired slide, but one that is sadly beginning to deteriorate, so a good time to commit it to the digital archives. No date or location on the slide, but I'm sure someone will be able to recognise where PCT No111, a 1958 vintage MCCW bodied Leyland PD2/40, OCO511 is parked in this view.

As is often the case on Flickr it does not take long for additional information to be added:
This is Fore Street in Devonport, the then terminus of the 33. This is now a pedestrian precinct. Woolies closed many years ago as they all will be soon. A classic shot of a bygone era. The guess is that must be from the early 1970's.
For many other fantastic photos from all over the country - the Lady has a well deserved fan club!

  1. Malborough Street Devonport facing towards Granby Way

  2. I should have made it clear that the bus is facing towards Granby Way and not the photographer. Sorry for any confusion.
