Bury Times: Kay Gardens, Bury, 1938

It was taken in February 1938 in Kay Gardens which served as the town’s main bus station with ornate bus shelters on three sides of a small park.

Those shelters are really something aren’t they. And look at the signs for the various destinations.

Note too the small queue barriers in front of each shelter.
