Austhorpe Road, Charles H. Roe Ltd, Cross Gates Carriage Works, Utility Ambulance (rear view) (Cross Gates)
Black & White imageUndated A rear view of a utility ambulance converted by the firm of Charles H. Roe Ltd. at Cross Gates Carrage Works in Austhorpe Road. Private individuals donated their cars, which involved sawing off the rear part of the body and replacing it with a simpler body incorporating a folding canvas rear cover. Here there is a provision for four strechers to convey injured civilians to hospital. Among the hundreds of ambulances turned out in this way, many went to Leeds Corporation to assist in the aftermath of air raids.
