Dear List
Does anyone know when the first motor buses came to Wakefield?
Which company made them and where were they made and who brought them?
I believe they were garaged at Belle Isle which was at the end of Portobello
Road
Is there still a bungalow on pillars at the garage?
Finally, does anyone remember a Bill Horton playing for Wakefield Trinity?
many thanks
Stephen
