On The Buses

Last Sunday the Pie Tribe headed to St Helens and The North West Museum Of Road Transport where a special event day was dedicated to Chester Buses.

Pictured on the left is the Pie Tribe aboard a Former Chester Corporation Bus on one of the many free trips around St Helens they were doing on the day. The crunch of the gears in first/second, the whine of the engine and the lean of the bus around corners were all evocative memories for the elder members of the Pie Tribe.

The Museum itself was interesting enough even if only to learn that Y Front underpants went on sale in Britain in 1938 and that Alcoholics annonymous had their 1st meetings in 1935 the same year beer was sold in cans for the first time! Little time was spent in the search of Pies and apart from the Museum St Helens seemed to be shut.
