Do you know why some East Yorkshire Buses were fitted with domed roofs?

Answers please as comments here at Cottingham.tv

The best answer picked out of the inbox on 23rd. December gets to own the original photo – and a mystery treat!

We’d also like to hear of your stories of local bus and coach services from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s!

As a young child, the author can remember catching the coach service with his parents from the side of the then new Paragon Street Library in Hull
to Easington and beyond to Kilnsea and Spurn and also a EYMS dome-top (as shown above) for days out to Hornsea!

Being picked up from infant school in a “Blue and White” old school single-decker coach in the 60s was also exciting, as it was richly upholstered and had long curving lines which conjured up thoughts and feelings of travelling great distances in cocooned luxury! Next stop on our magic bus-turned space ship .. the Moon?
