Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton
This photo, taken in August 1968, shows Lichfield Street in the city centre with green and cream buses operated by Wolverhampton Corporation Transport. The one in front is a Guy Arab V with Metro-Cammell 72-seater bodywork, recognisable by its rectangular air vent on its upper front dome. It is approaching Victoria Square on route 10 from Tettenhall Wood. The one behind it is a 1957 Guy Arab IV with Metro-Cammell 60-seater bodywork whilst hidden behind that one is a 1963 Guy Arab V with Park Royal 72-seater bodywork. To the left of the photo is a black and white coach and a red Royal Mail cart. Bus services in Wolverhampton were transferred to the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive on the 1st October 1969 and the vehicles repainted in royal blue and cream livery. These days, buses owned by Arriva Midlands, National Express West Midlands and Travel Express operate the services in Wolverhampton.
