I wonder how long the journey took?
Walls' always had their coaches garaged behind Manchester Road in the 1950's and early 60's.They always ahd loads of customers for their day trips and Blackpool Illuminations trips. There is an entry in the Ince Directory for an Ernest Walls, motor driver of 279,Manchester Road.
