Trolleybuses on King Edward Street  Kingston upon Hull
Trolleybuses on King Edward Street Kingston upon Hull
This picture was taken in 1963, on King Edward Street Hull, which was the main terminus for trolleybuses in those days.
The trolleybus in the centre of the picture is one of the famous and unique ''Coronation'' class of twin-door, twin-staircase Sunbeams
delivered with one-manning in mind (and years ahead of their time).
These vehicles were tragically scrapped when less than 9 years old and even more tragic not one Hull trolleybus was saved for preservation.
The Hull trolleybus system closed down on the 31st of October 1964.
