Ellen Smith's Tours, Rochdale RDK4, a Leyland Tiger Cub PSUC1/2 with Duple Britannia C41C body, new in 1957.
One can almost hear again the lusty snarl of the typically Tiger Cub exhaust as it roars up Bradford Road out of Stump Cross, Halifax, anxious to get away from its own fumes and with no time to hang about behind the faltering Ford D-type.
Throughout my childhood the overhanging trees here used to be permanently festooned with masses of dangling woollen scraps ripped out from the highly stacked bales on the backs of the constant stream of typically West Riding hauliers' wagons and trailers as they toiled up the gradient.
