The 1st one is a picture of the Childwall Abbey taken from the lytchgate of the church over the road. A lovely clear picture!

A view looking down the road towards the church with the Abbey on the right.

It in the location of the QEII law courts with Trials Hotel and the Town Hall in the far back ground.

I'll have to look the street up as its not there any more but Cable Street runs off it. :)

Thanks folks. I vaguely remember it. Wasn't there a telegraph house or something on Cable st where the postmen/telegram men parked their old red bikes outside, early 70s ish.

Yes, there was.
I've got photos which I'll put in the '1980s, 1990s' thread.

I've found the photos, and while you're right about the bus being in South Castle Street, Telegraph House was actually in South John Street (I wrote it on the back of the photos, that's how I know. :))

I'll scan them now.

No. Prince Alfred Road And Walton. I was on the spare sheet at both and was spare man at the Pier Head quite often and got the odd 16 if someone failed to turn to or went off sick. Sometimes got sent to the Haymarket for 51too.

Its on the Liverpool part of the route (if you look at streetlights) So it must be Vauxhall rd,Tithebarn St or Chapel St . where's Gerard or Ged when you need them???

Sorry, i've even examined this scene against other photos I have of the streets mentioned previously but as there are no defining buildings such as a pub or shop name, it's hard to work out just where it is.

Well the destination board says 'Pier Head' so we can safely assume its heading South into the City Centre. The buildings in the background don't look like anything on the South East side of Tithebarn St or Chapel Street so it would be somewhere on Vauxhall Road.

Hi Rob,

Have a family friend that used to live in Childwall and sent him a copy of the bus/coach outside Childwall Abbey. He took exactly the same picture on that day, but from a slightly different angle and has given me some more information - hope this is something new to you:

On October 1st 1952, LCPT took over from BEA responibility for providing the City Centre-Speke Airport Services. With this came 4x Bedford Duple OB coaches, new in 1949-50, with standard Duple 'Vista' bodies. They were the only eptrol engined vehiciles to be operated by LCPT for several years and were repainted in 1954 from airline blue to green with cream roofs and numbered B1-4. Number B1 had the standard 29 seat layout for the Vista but the other 3 had more luxurious seating, a row being omitted so that the seating was reduced to 25. All were withdrawn by 1961 being replaced by Leyland Royal Tiger coaches.
There were 6 Layland coaches, with Crossley framed bodies finished at Edge Lane, entering service (after severe manufacturing delays) in 1955-6. 4 were completed as duel entrance 40 seaters for OMO experiments on routes 66,77 and 88 and rebuilt in 1960 for the airport service. They were withdrawn in 1973-4 after transfer to the Lime Street - Landing Stage service. The other 2, SL175-6, had front entrances and fixed indicators showing PRIVATE and were used only for private hire work and on the Mersey Tunnel Service.

After the formation of the PTE, SL175-6 were transferred to Wirral in blue livery and re-numbered 98-97 in the ex-Birkenhead series. They operated as one-man buses until withdrawn in 1972 after which 98 became a ticket sales office in Liverpool.

The photo outside Childwall Abbey shows SL176 awaiting a wedding party at Childwall Abbey in 1959.

Interesting to note that both WG Marks and W M Hall, LCPT General Managers, lived for many years at the hotel.

Thanks Cad.

Used to sit on SL175 at Litherland depot in my Short trousered bus spotting days! It was based there for the overnight Tunnel service shared with Birkenhead Corpy.

We have one of the converted "Airporters" XL 171 SKB168
which is awaiting restoration.

Can never understand why Liverpool Transport didn't get the registrations to match the fleet numbers at times!

Viz some of our preserved stuff L227 SKB 224 ,
L161 RKC 262, as they used to reserve big batches of numbers in advance. The VKB 7** series running from 1956 to 1961 when the local vehicle office was issuing reversed regs no in 1961 viz 6300 K

Never knew the info about the GM's living at the Hotel

Our vintage bus running day is progressing well for 9th September and we have just got Merseytravel on board to assist. More details soon

Many Thanks

Even without her badge number (which was a License) Merseytravel in Hatton Garden is the place to go, as they might still have her records.
I've still got my badge, somewhere.
