SJ3390 : The new regime

taken 46 years ago, near to Seacombe, Wirral, Great Britain

The new regime
The new regime
This is one of the batch of 110 Leyland Panther buses ordered by the newly-formed Merseyside Passenger Transport Executive, delivered in 1968/9. They marked a significant change for the area, as the former Liverpool Corporation Transport undertaking had relied almost exclusively on double-deck vehicles.
It is pictured at the foot of Water Street, entering the then newly-built (and since demolished) Pier Head Bus Station. Note the black state of the Liver Building on the left - this was well before it was cleaned to its current state of greyness.
This is one of a series of views featuring buses in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
