Birkenhead bus garage 1973

"Birkenhead Corporation Motor Omnibus Garage NGR SJ3385

This was the Corporation's secondary garage at New Ferry, built in the 1930s. Sadly it has now been demolished and replaced by commercial development.
In this view buses of the former Birkenhead Corporation and Wallasey Corporation bus fleets can be seen, by now operated by Merseyside PTE. The blue bus is in the PTE's Wirral division livery, representing the blue of Birkenhead with the cream of Wallasey (neither accurate continuations!). The cream bus is a former Wallasey bus and was on a special tour saying farewell after some 20 years of service. It was repainted specially and has been preserved. It is shown here as if working on the old service 10 which was operated jointly by the two undertakings, running between New Ferry and New Brighton. A feature of both Birkenhead and Wallasey buses was the very large and clear destination display." Text AMR
