Prospect Hotel, Drawing of a Single Deck Bus (Morley)
Colour imageUndated. A drawing by Eric B. Farr of a single deck bus standing at the Prospect Hotel by the Parish Church churchyard during the Second World War. The A.E.C. Regal/Weymann Number 29 was being used as a duplicate to the Prospect Hotel because buses from the centre of Morley to Leeds were practically always full when they reached this stop, and further on, at Churwell. Note that the bus is painted battleship grey, that the mudguards have been painted white and that the headlights have been reduced to little narrow slits to stop a broad beam lighting up the road in the dark. Many of the male conductors of this time had been replaced by women. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive
