Bennet’s Bus

Bennets Bus

Thanks to Norman Dunn for sending us this photo.

The photo is taken in the 1920’s. Norman was told that Northern General took over the service later. He was also told that dead bodies were transported to the Mortuary or Hospital during the night in the bus which was run by the shop. The bus was probably one of Hebburn’s very first. The photo was taken outside the papershop on corner of Bewick St & Lyon St. The driver is Hughie Bennet, who married the shop owner & father of the lady (Evelyn Dunn) who loaned him the original photo.
