Memories of Bangor, Garth Road c1965


For a young bus enthusiast in the 1960s, the bus station on Garth Road was the gateway to Anglesey and many of the country routes behind Bangor.

My grandfather was a Crosville driver in the 1960s, his name was Bob Jones, married to Margaret, does anyone remember him?

When I visited them I used to stand at the parlour window to watch it go past, as I had a crush on one of the drivers! Sometimes he would see me there and wave back - I was about 14. Linda Thomas
