Lydiate – The 321 Ribble Bus Route from Liverpool

I recently purchased the photo below of a Lydiate bound 321 bus parked outside Liverpool’s Lime Street Railway Station close to the long gone Skelhorne Street Ribble (then North Western) Bus Station.

Now compare that photo of a model of the very same bus from Exclusive First Editions. Note the Ribble vehicle numbers are the same -2470.

I have posted about the model of this bus before at:-

You can see a photo of the old Skelhorne Street Bus Station on Philip Mayer’s flickr page:-

I recall these very buses and indeed traveled on them in my childhood but my recollection of Skelhorne Street Bus Station was that is was a dark and not very welcoming place to a youngster.

Both photos are amongst my Flickr shots at:-
