Cheapside, Bradford City Centre
Cheapside, Bradford City Centre
Taken in April 1968, this photo shows a 1967 Daimler Fleetline 280 (FKY 280E) with Metro-Cammell 74-seater bodywork operated by Bradford City Transport in Cheapside on route 24 to Crossflatts via Saltaire and Bingley. On the left of the photo is 142 (YKW 142) a BCT 1963 AEC Regent V bus with Metro-Cammell 70-seater bodywork on the same route but going to Bradford Moor. This route was formerly operated by trolleybuses, the section between the City Centre and Bradford Moor being abandoned on the 17th November 1962, whilst the section between City Centre and Crossflatts was abandoned on the 31st October 1963. In the background can be seen the former Head Post Office with the tower of Bradford Cathedral behind it. Broadway can just be seen in the foreground on the right of the photo. This area has completely changed over the decades since with the buildings on each side of Cheapside having been demolished. Planning approval has now been given for a new building development including shops on this site.
