29th of August
Met David Grimstone at Conway Street bus depot today. David is one of our members who works on the buses and he had a ticket machine, old boxes and tram coins! He had helped clear out a retiring bus man's house and came up with this lot,see pictures.The ticket machine is a Bell Punch Solomatic,from 1966 and was used on the first one man buses.He also has stacks of the tramway post office tokens, which are been sold on E-bay for silly money! There are also accident forms for buses and trolley buses, will report back, once I have delved more, thanks David.
