An appeal: Reproduced below is a black and white image of 2236 in Altrincham in its early days (circa 1972, we think, as it was still allocated to Princess Road depot). If you took the photo, or know who did, or if you are the driver or a passenger, please get in touch!

Thanks also to the anonymous person who sent the negative to Kevin in August 2014.
