An unidentified Salford Park Royal-bodied Atlantean on service 10 to Warrington passes new SELNEC Standard 7010 loading for Weaste on service 3.
Recent photo postings and comments about Salford prompted me to dig out this slightly fuzzy but nostalgic photo showing Salford's Greengate - possibly the most miserably gloomy bus terminus anywhere. I worked in the SELNEC Central North West Schedules Department at the former SCT Frederick Road Depot in 1972/73, and seem to recall that Greengate was used by Salford services 3 and 5, and the joint 10 to Warrington, as well as by Leigh buses on the 26 and LUT's 38 and 39.
Greengate passed underneath the breadth of the by then disused Exchange Station which I believe once boasted the longest platform in Britain, and whose roof can be seen across the entire width of the top of the photo.
