Two more photos from Mirfield

Both the photographs below are reproduced from the Mirfield website (thanks Eric), and I think date to 1969.

Old bread van

First up is a great photo showing a Whittle's Bread delivery van, making a delivery. No worrying about parking close to kerb, and a refreshing lack of yellow lines and the excess of road signage we have to put up with now, cluttering the place up. The driver is obscuring most of the cab, but I think it may be a Leyland FG (the registration is 436 TE). Parked in front is a very tatty looking Ford Anglia (105E), with very rusty looking sills and globs of mismatched paint in evidence. Outside the Dyson's store is a Mk2 Cortina estate, and behind that an interest little coach / minibus type vehicle outside a Tetley's pub, possibly a BMC or Commer. Alongside is a single deck bus, and further up, a white 1100, and what might be an HB Viva. Driving away from the photographer is a Volvo 120 series (Amazon) with a trailer hooked on the back. A Scammell is heading towards us.

Leyland Atlantean

Another view from the same section of road, again with Dyson's store in shot. On the left is a Hillman Imp, and next up a 4/72 or 4/68 Riley saloon (Farina design - registration 7502 WU) with its driver sat in the seat, arm on the window ledge. A G reg Cortina with several optional lamps fitted, is in front (possibly a 1600E). Grumbling up to the bus stop are two Leyland Atlantean buses, the nearest being DHD 214E, whose driver is waving out of the window - either indicating a desire to pull out, or gesturing to the driver of the HB Vauxhall Viva estate who is zooming by. Next up is an HA Bedford van, with its number plate half hanging off, and a 105E Anglia turning right in the direction of Hopton, and the local car park.
