Red Wigan buses?
How old are you, Geoff? Prior to Selnec/GMPT Wigan Corporation buses were always Cherry and White.
Can't see the unique green lights either side of the destination board.I think you call it artistic licence.Not100% accurate.
This one I love..I was brought up in Wallgate so I just feel at home looking at it...wish I had this print.
I'm 61 and the buses were maroon and white, same as Bolton. Have a look hat some of the colour photos on this site.
Geoff, Bolton's buses were a lot darker in color than ours. I know this because I worked at de Havilland Propellers from 1952 to 1965 and I can assure you that they were nowhere near the same colour.
Maybe, but still maroon and not red as the bus in the painting is.
