That's probably what I'm thinking of Loiner.

AY=FULLThe clock is not there in 1969http://www.flickr.com/photos/david_christie/se ... 499171284/ Just at present I can't find the date when the West Riding buses to Rothwell and Wakefield/Kettelthorpe ceased to use the Corn Exchange island (one is there in this picture) and were banished to their new mini bus station in York Street. LCT bus number 700 (a former Motor Show exhibit) was withdrawn on 11th July 1969.

Taken from Flickr a quote from busman 91The alterations to the Corn Exchange island were rather complex but I've sifted through for these dates which, I must say, have surprised me too now I've seen them. However, after a very brief spell when the West Riding buses used their CX roadway curve in the opposite direction they finally moved into their own new Bus Station on October 9th 1956. The last number 14 tram had run on 30th October 1953 so the two events were not as time connected as I had thought. Completion of the Corn Exchange island in the form we know it today was on 22nd January 1957.What do you think BLAKEY ?

Thanks Uncle Mick - at least we can now narrow the photo down then to between September 1955 and October 8th 1956. Incidentally I don't recall writing the above info about the dates, but must have done - the old grey matter is getting dodgy from time to time now !!
