A photo of a Wolverhampton Corporation Guy Arab III with Park Royal 54 seat double deck body from the 539-560 batch (FJW539-560) built in 1949/50. It would have been freshly painted in the distinctive green/custard yellow colour.
Believed to be standing in the entrance/exit to the Cleveland Road bodyshop where vehicles were overhauled. Wolverhampton Transport's Guy Arab III's were unusual in having preselector gearboxes (assisting ex trolley bus drivers of the town) and also specified a sliding door for the driver.
