This photo sees one of Leeds superb 30-foot long Roe-bodied Regent Vs 949, 949JUB, heading along York Road in Leeds and passing former SHMD Daimler 76, VTU76.
This bus can be seen elsewhere on this site and at the time of the photograph had just been bought for preservation. It was making only its second trip, which was to the traction engine rally in Pickering but had stopped because the very heavy destination blind had fallen out! The blinds on this bus were rebuilt following an accident but it was soon restored to its original layout as seen in the other photo.
