United BBH56, WHN56, a Bristol KSW6B with ECW H32/28R body new in 1955, seen in the snowy Newcastle Jesmond depot yard on 15 February 1970 after renumbering to BH56 in November 1964 then to 74 in January 1969.
This was the final KSW in registration though not the highest BBH fleet number, and was sold for scrap during the following November. Jesmond Road is behind the stone wall.
My diary says this was the day of a private tour, possibly organised by the Omnibus Society, Northern Branch. We travelled from Newcastle Gallowgate depot and coach station in 73 (WHN55) then used 74 to visit United depots at Morpeth, Ashington, Blyth and former home town Whitley Bay where I alighted.
