Help!!
« on: September 11, 2012, 07:55:25 PM »
As many of you know I re-color Black and white photos, mostly of or with buses in them.
I am working on a picture for the 2548 group of their fantastically restored bus outside Boots the Chemist which can be viewed here [size=78%]http://www.2548.co.uk/photo.php#?[/size]
Have any of you got a photo of Boots from around the same time?
or do you remember the signage?
The picture is to be used to keep the bus on the road so I am working on the picture for free with the Groups and the photographers permission.
Many thanks in advance.

Are you referring to the Tom Moore photo that was taken in New Street (captioned as 'Corporation Street') at its junction with Bennetts Hill?
 
There are a number of photo's in existence of that area, from various eras, but they mainly tend to concentrate on the unusual architecture of the building on the left of that photo, and whatever was on the opposite corner (currently AGORA Amusements) barely gets a look in (though that's not to say that none of them will contain what you're looking for).
There's no B/S on Planet Malc.
