The photograph below has been sent to us by Roger Monk. He is asking if anyone can tell him where the photograph was taken please.
According to his father’s notes the photograph was taken on the 31st August 1957 and the location is shown as ‘Killamarsh’. The notes also say that they travelled on this bus from Killamarsh to Sheffield. The gentleman in the bus doorway is George Bullock who was a bus enthusiast who lived in Sheffield and was a family friend. He was a bus photographer and may well have taken some bus photos in the area.
If anyone can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
We have received some responses to our request for information on where the above photograph was taken.
Christine Johnson (nee Bartholomew) says it was taken at the bus terminus where the bus to Sheffield turned around near the corner of Mansfield Road and Hut Lane at High Moor. Christine says this is where she caught the bus down to the village to catch the bus to the Grammar School at Halfway.
Kath and Peter Hutchinson also say the photograph was taken at High Moor where the bus turned roung to go back to Sheffield. They say the photograph would have been taken before the destination board was changed to read Sheffield.
Neil Morris says the photograph was taken at High Moor outside number 60 Mansfield Road.
