Manchester's #Arndale bus station opened in the late 1970s but, to be honest, never looked as inviting as it does in this official photo. There were few regrets when it closed, precipitated by the IRA bomb planted just around the corner from here in 1996. Its functions are now undertaken by #Shudehill Interchange, a far more modern and comfortable place.

During the second world war, Salford's buses and trams got into a shocking state. Staff and spare parts shortages were a key factor but so was the management and organisation of Salford's Corporation Transport Department. After the new war, a new General Manager was appointed who turned out to be a new broom that swept very clean indeed. Mr. Charles W. Baroth was determined that Salford should be proud of its buses, and he started by introducing a smart new green and cream colour sch...

Whitefield was, right back from the early days of the trams, regarded as Salford bus territory; but for many years Manchester, Bury and Lancashire United buses could be found there. The tiny Whitefield bus station sufficed until a new GMT interchange was created in the late 1970s, but this photo predates even that when buses turned in the wide space created by the junction of Stanley Road with Bury New Road. Number 27 was new in 1931, and we think this photo was taken when it was new. It is…

There's plenty of interest in this scene at #Piccadilly #bus station, taken from the roof of what is now #Primark bus was at the time Lewis' department store. We think the photo was taken about 1989, and what's interesting is how dominated the scene is by #GMBuses, the company that was split from Greater #Manchester Passenger Transport Executive in 1986.
