The Way We Were - 2


A sequence of passing scenes starting with the wartime bus shelter at what was originally Layton Windmill / Hoo Hill stop. A Line 11 Excel finds no takers as it heads towards Layton Institute. Below : Jubilee 762 passes Bispham's classic Tram Station (still standing) in its 'ReBlackpool' branding in 2010.

The former Cleveleys Odeon cinema structure (later the Orion) has collapsed onto the adjoining roadway and narrowly missing the tramroad track. The demolition company having obviously misjudged their strategy for dismantling the landmark structure. Centenary 643 slowly traverses past having been instructed to slow to walking pace past the site. Quite remarkably nobody was injured in the sudden collapse.
