Old bus at the bottom of Bath Street

editorial image

There is a transport theme for this week’s Memory Lane with pictures dating back as far as 50 years.

This old photograph above shows one of the Bristol KSWs at the bottom of Bath Street. The vehicles were bought to replace the trolleybus fleet for Notts and Derby’s traction system.

The picture was shared with Ilkeston fans on social media by Brian Yeomans.

He said: “ The image was scanned from a book and checking with the book the date of the photo is May 1965.”
