Arrival from Rotherham
Arrival from Rotherham
A former Rotherham Corporation Daimler CVG6 with Roe bodywork, now sporting the tan and cream livery of South Yorkshire PTE, on Harmer Street approaching Pond Street Bus Station. It is working the service 277 from Doncaster and Rotherham which had originally been a joint operation between the three municipal undertakings.
In the background can be seen the iconic Park Hill flats. Although nearly 20 years old by that time, they were still looking fresh.
This is one of a series of views featuring buses in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
