SHMD's last Atkinsons were front entrance but still had standee bodies. In this case the front rows of seats were just single seats with normal seating further back. This is a view inside 110, 993GMA, an Atkinson PL746H with Northern Counties B34F body, reseated in 1967 to B41F. It was numbered 93 when new but renumbered in 1961.
The standee windows are obvious in this view and another feature of note is the reversing window in the emergency exit, quite an advanced feature for the time. The replacement seats at the front are obvious, with different seat frames. A photograph of one of these when new can be seen here.
The single seats can just be made out, as can the need for a reversing window!
