HS9141, a 1936/7 Leyland TD4
This is a picture taken of my Grandmother, Edith Richards, at the start of her local Woman's Guild outing just before setting off for I believe, Ogmore by Sea. The location is Court Street, Tonypandy, Glamorgan and the date is only a guess but it would be around 1951/52 but could possibly be a year or two later. With it's Renfrew registration dating from December 1936 or January 1937, clearly the Leyland was on it's second owner at least and I am sure records will give us a more accurate clue. On the back of the photograph, my Grandmother apologies for her appearance and that "...my face never comes out!" I know that she was not well for a time after being poisoned accidentally during the War hence her plump and tousled look but she did recover and lived until 1985 aged 91 !
So....the original operator should be easy and hopefully details of the Welsh owners at the time the picture was taken might be on record. My other thought is about the bodywork because the offside wing seems to be either missing or buried under panelling but the twin tone horns are impressive!
