Former Tynemouth 146, FT6146, an AEC Regent II with Weymann H30-26R body new in 1948 with William B Kerr, North Shields
This picture answers a few questions. 146 was withdrawn in 1959 and passed to Kerr via North (dealer) Leeds in June 1960, passing to Service Coaches, Bebside in April 1961. This confirms the picture was taken late October or early November during half-term holidays in 1960. It also helps date more accurately the picture of United BL 18 posted as few days ago, taken on the same day.
In the background is the Cannon public house confirming the location as between Fastaff Avenue and Billy Mill. roundabout on the Coast Road A visit to the Cannon left me unimpressed with the beer, I had already aquired a taste for the Bank's Bitter brewed in Wolverhampton!
