A rather poor upload of GCT 188, GE7220, Leyland TD1 which was rebodied by Hurst Nelson in 1931.
It featured the front emergency door which was discussed recently.
In this view the escape ladder can be seen and it looks like the whole window etc hinged forward and down. It is believed that this was a demonstration of the emergency exit, but it would be interesting to learn if Hurst Nelson was asked to provide this after Cowieson had already incorporated in 1930 vehicles. Note the unusual position of the "Glasgow Corporation" transfer due to vents above the lower deck windows.
