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.
9 December 2018: 2236 has been fitted with (some) LED lighting! - read the story here: 2236_led_lighting.pdf
10 Nov 2015: Ralph Bennett RIP
Ralph Bennett was the General Manager of Manchester Corporation Transport who was responsible for the introduction of the ‘Mancunian’ bus design to the City before later moving on to London Transport; he passed away on 10 November 2015. There is a fitting tribute on the ‘net (please paste the link below into your address bar as FreeWebs' Link Generator is not working):
There's an 8-page article by Stephen Morris in 'Classic Bus' magazine issue 81 (Feb/March 2006) featuring the input of Ken Mortimer to the 'Mancunian' design.
