Austin A40 Farina Mark II and an Auckland trolley bus, circa 1974

We think this is looking along Victoria Street from Albert Street, but as every building visible has since been replaced it's hard to be sure.  For more, see earlier posts, and of course our books.

I have a friend who worked on these Trolley buses and would recognize the location, will try and get him to visit your blog or join up, very clued up on buses etc.

Yes, absolutely right, looking north. You can see the wires from Westmere coming in from above no 130 which is now very scruffy and in its last days. Could be 1975 or early 1976, I cannot now remember exactly when the Farmers trolleys ceased even though I was there at the time!
