Civil Defence Mobile Canteen

What we know about this image :

A West Hartlepool Corporation Mobile Canteen for use by the Civil Defence. This photograph was probably taken during the Second World War, as the running boards and leading edges of the interior steps have been painted white. Although the body looks grey, it was in fact painted pale blue and cream. As this is a converted trolley bus with no power poles, it had to be towed to wherever it was needed.
