Hi Lyn, he will know where this is but might not know the bus which was owned by a company called Harpers and the the route went to Brownhills and some on to Cannock.phil just shown that pic to our tom and he guessed aldridge road but near the dog track...got the right road but a bit way off...he couldnt believe it when i revealed the location he got the right location on post 65 but being a bus driver helped..
That style of bus could be seen all over the UK. They were Leylands (sometimes other engines) with MCW (Saltley) 'Orion' bodies.Well that bus in #69 is about the ugliest I've seen. Not only that it is about the least happy one I've seen.
No wonders they were taken over.
I've marked two houses with red spots on this aerial view dated 1950. The house near the top of the pic has two chimneys on the gable wall. The house towards bottom right has a two windows in it's gable wall, the left one higher than the right window. Both of these houses can be seen in the pic in post#75 so the men are adjacent to the Birchfield Harriers site, probably just past the Grandstand which may not have been built when the early pic was taken.
