Mining in Oakengates had ended many years before this 1967 photograph, but its scars are still evident in the landscape. At the left, a Ferris wheel is seen showing that there was a fair in the town, and right in the centre one of H. Brown's stylish Sentinel single-deck buses (in fact they were coaches) can be seen in the small Stafford Road bus station. H. Brown was the largest operator of Sentinel buses in Britain - he had eight!
