British Trolleybuses - Newcastle upon Tyne
British Trolleybuses - Newcastle upon Tyne
Byker Bridge in 1966 looking east. The distinctive supports for the overhead wires have disappeared, and we seem to need crash barriers these days.
The days of trolleybuses in Newcastle were nearly up when this picture was taken; only one east-west corridor from Walker to Benwell and Denton remained of a once extensive system.
