Old Hartlepool Blue Bus

What we know about this image :

When old Hartlepool received Borough status, the Council purchased four second-hand double-deck buses. Painted blue, many local people would refuse to use any of the 'red' buses, preferring instead to wait for one of their own. These blue buses were garaged and maintained at the Bee Line coach garage in Oxford Road, West Hartlepool. The last blue bus ran on 28th April, 1967.
