Brings back so many memories. I used to get the trolley bus from outside the Palace at Platt Bridge to The Bird ith Hand, Hindley, on way back from my Grandma's at Platt Bridge.
The nearest trolleybus belongs to St Helens Corporation with the farther one belonging to South Lancs Transport (which was a subsidiary of LUT) and both look like they are heading hot Hindley then Atherton.
It does bring back memories... of aitch posting the same pic last December.
Brings back memories AGAIN Aitch, but they ARE the same modes of transport, Trolly buses!
There's still a small brick building adjacent to Southworth House in Hindley Green behind the bus stop. In the trolley bus days, I think it was used to provide power to the overhead wires, the initials SLT are fashioned in brick.
Apologies if I have published this picture previously, but you can put that down to my age, at nearly 74 I think I am allowed a little leeway, but I wasn't thinking only of the trolley buses, but Hindley South railway station straight through the centre of the shot
what year would this have been? My guess would be 1950??
your'e doing a good job aitch, iv'e enjoyed all your pics keep em coming.
I worked at a garage in Bickershaw lane in 1954 and for a while went on the trolleys terminating in the area behind were Iceland is in Platt bridge
