Huddersfield bus station
Huddersfield bus station
Huddersfield has a distinguished place in transport history, for it was the very first municipality to operate its own transport system, in the shape of steam tramways in 1884. These were succeeded by electric trams and then trolleybuses, of which Huddersfield had one of the finest systems in Britain, remembered with real affection by many older burghers. By 1970 the trolleys had all gone, and by the time of this photograph in 1989, privatisation had ended any municipal involvement in transport. Here a line-up of seven diesel powered double deckers shows the face of late 20th-century public transport.
