Taken in April 1969, this photo shows a Salford City Transport bus in Victoria Bus Station on route 73 to Whitefield Bus Station via Heaton Park. It is 291 (MRJ 291F) a 1968 Leyland Atlantean with Metro-Cammell 77-seater bodywork in the operator's green and cream livery. Manchester Exchange Station, which can be seen in the background, closed shortly after this photo was taken on the 5th May 1969, with rail services stopping at the nearby Manchester Victoria Station. A car park now occupies the site of this bus station.
