Unrepeatable Scene

A Leyland National in New George Street

A great shot of a bus that no longer exists in a location that buses don't go and even if they did it does not look like this anymore! Littlewoods has long gone too and this store is now TJ Hughes. The area is now a pedestrian zone although there is now on street parking along sections of New George Street. I am pretty sure that buses were not regularly using New George Street at this time so I can only assume it was for an event taking place on Royal Parade as buses were often diverted through the City Centre when the Parade was closed. Thanks to Jos for allowing me to use his photos. Expect to see more over the coming weeks!
