Its September 1976 again as we return to Blackpool for this edition of “Picture in Time”.
Featured today is Brush Car 634 which is in a colourful and short-lived special livery to mark the Centenary of Blackpool Borough (Blackpool had received its Charter of Incorporation as a Borough on 21st January 1876). Applied in the April of 1976 it would remain in place until October 1976 so by the time of this photo only had a short period of time left before it would lose this livery. With roof advert boxes in place, the Blackpool Borough crest on the trolley tower plus a couple of seagulls on the yellow and blue wavy lines (who says giant seagulls on trams was a modern invention – as seen on Flexity2 016 and its Freeport livery).
This photo shows 634 running along Lord Street, Fleetwood as it returns to Starr Gate on route 5 (as seen with the route number card in the cab window).
