Not the sharpest slide in the box of archive views from G V V T, but it has a wealth of interesting features. DWG912, a Leyland PD2/12 (Alexander Midland /Alexander L53R body) overtakes GCT Trolleybus TB14, FYS714, as they tended to do, as both vehicles turn left from Royston Road into Castle Street.
The Midland bus has lost its number screen, heading for Dundas St Bus Station, the trolleybus heading south via Glasgow Cross. Service 101/2 were replaced by motorbuses in May 1966. Police box adverts and telephone box add to the atmosphere of an evening view with low sun. The Monklands canal was behind the police box.
