Withdrawn in October 1962 sold to Frank Cowley, Salford, purchased by the Clynnog & Trevor Motor Company Ltd in 11/62, scrapped in 1972
The unattended Ford Popular at the side of the road has a Derby registration, maybe it belonged to the unknown photographer. These vehicles were known by drivers and maintenance staff unsurprisingly as 'sweatboxes'
