Following the closure of the Ledgard business vehicles were stored at the various West Yorkshire depots. This is a view of the Bradford depot in Hammerton Street, although this rear entrance that led to the fuel pumps was off Jackson Street and was taken in November 1967 with some early snow on the ground.
On the left is the rear end of what I think is BCK441, one of the ex Ribble PD1/A of 1947 with a 1955 Burlingham L27/26RD body. Left of centre is GTY169 the ex Tyneside Leyland PD2/12 with Metro Cammell H32/26R body, and on the right MXX147 a 1952 AEC RT with Weymann H30/26R body behind which is what apears to be a Leyland PD2 and then three Bristol K's. Centre is the rear of one of the home fleet's Lodekkas. The picture was taken from the top of the embankment on which the railway coal depot was situated.
