Ex-Stockport Corporation Crossley 203, JA7603, one of two Crossleys (203/5) delivered in 1941.
This rear view is one of three images of the former bus (retired by Stockport ca. 1958) taken on a bleak Hyde building site in 1968.The body is pure 'Mancunian' with Stockport blinds, etc. and looked to be in good shape in its gutted, boarded-up role as a builder's store/shelter. The precise location isn't given and not enough can be seen of the houses at the edges of the frame to guess just where they were/are.
Could this bus have used a spare body released by Manchester Corporation?
