This photo shows a new Daimler Fleetline bus with Northern Counties 72-seater bodywork turning from Walker Road into Blakenall Heath on route 15. This route was operated by West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive and was operated by trolleybuses until Saturday 3rd October, 1970 the date this photo was taken. The trolleybus overhead wiring and traction poles were dismantled within a few months of that date. Route 29 operated by National Express West Midlands now operates along the same roads as did former route 15 between Walsall and Bloxwich. The housing on the left of the photo and the building on the right have since been demolished.
