The Back End of the Bus

Ribble 500, UCK500, is a Leyland Leopard PSU3/1R with Marshall B53F body, and she was delivered in March 1964. We see her in Lancaster Bus Station in September 1979.
The slide was taken on ORWO UT18 film, the East German version of Agfa CT18, and it could give quite wonderful results, in the right conditions. A ship on a sunny day, 10 out of 10, but at the other end of the scale, I have some of my best night shots at lunchtime on a dull day.
BLOTW tells us that the registration, but not the rest of the vehicle, went to Davies, Carmarthen, in 1989, and was fitted to the former RBO194M.
