Unfortunately not much background surrounds this picture of Blackpool transport's number 15, BFR380, a 1940 Leyland Tiger TS8 with Burlingham FB34F bodywork. This vehicle lasted until 1961 before becoming a mobile publicity unit.
Note the unusual use of the nearside destination box for the pay as you enter message, causing the destination to be squeezed in to the offside display. Service 18 to Midgeland Road via Welcome Inn with the service number ringed.
