Can I express my thanks for Keith's superb treatise on Hull's transport history. If these first installments are indicative of the entire project, then this is indeed a magnificent work worthy of publication. Dare I ask if there will be any photographs and maps to accompany the chapters?

So we are at Chapter 4 and apparently there are another 20 or so to come, I am surprised a specialist publisher has not stepped in for this excellent piece of work.
Well done Keith.

Have you any idea why a trolley bus (No 34) would be stabled in Wheeler Street depot with 66 on the blinds? Was this some temporary route perhaps? There is a 63 behind it!
Many thanks for your copious notes on all the routes. Much appreciated them.

The garage is actually Cottingham Road and the photograph was taken by Les Storry who was an enthusiast and foreman there.
The 66 blind is the wartime large number blind that replaced the 62A pre-war blind. There was a stock of old pre-war and wartime blinds at the garage and Les would fit one to a trolleybus (usually a Crossley) and take a photograph thus keeping a very good record for posterity. Les took over 1000 photos of trolleybuses alone over a twenty-plus year period and was a great source of information when I was researching for my Hull trolleybus history.
He is sadly missed.
