Bus nostalgia
« on: 12 March 2010, 20:14:10 »

Some pics of a local rally here on the Wirral.
I , up until 2 years ago lived on the village shown here.
Used get this bus to school.

[/img]

The fare to school was 1.1/2d roughly 1/2 a new penny!

[/img]

The greenCrosville bus would take my sister and I  to Chester for 6d ( 2.1/2 new pennies) return. That would be our day out.

The yellow one was a Wallasey bus that would take my sister and I to New Brighton for 2d (roughly 1 new pence) were there was two fair grounds.

I still have every episode, including the B/W ones, and the three movies, brilliant.
A bit of useless info, the actress who played the mother, Doris Hare, (not Ceclily Courtlidge, who only played 'mam in the 1st series) went to school with my grandmother, St Gwladys School Bargoed.
