The regular participants in the site's message board seem to have a great interest in door mechanisms, so I thought I would submit the attached. It's one of a set of English Electric photographs of Ribble buses I have just uploaded to my gallery (see link below). It's the interior of Dennis Ace C1416, CK4886, which had a twenty-seat body.
Clearly visible is the handle for operating the front door which was clearly manually-operated. Ribble also gave their vehicles body numbers which were one less than the chassis number and had a B-prefix, so this one was B1415.
