White Lady Outside the Midland in Morecambe
Ribble was one of the first British bus companies to introduce double-deck coaches after the Second World War when demand was very heavy for express services. Painted in the reverse white/red coach livery, these were nicknamed “White Ladies”. Now owned by Stagecoach, Ribble "White Lady" 1248, a Leyland Titan PD2 with East Lancashire coachwork (DCK 219) was delivered new to Ribble in 1951 and remained in use until the early 1960s when the “White Ladies” were replaced by the Leyland Atlantean-based “Gay Hostesses” which were more suitable for the era of long distance motorway travel. Here, she is seen on Marine Road Central with Morecambe’s famous Midland Hotel behind.
