Photographed on or before the first stage of the Wolverhampton conversion [9th June 1963] when route 4 was withdrawn. The bus, a Sunbeam W of 1946, was fleet number 429 and probably lasted until the final conversion in 1967.
Route 4 terminated in Chubb St, near the High Level station, and route 9 was a cross-town route from Jeffcock Road to Amos Lane.

Just a short note to say what an excellent site you have there. I well remember as a boy travelling to school in Wolverhampton on the fleet of trolleybuses owned by that town's corporation.
I now live in Croydon, and it was good to see so many shots of London vehicles [on this site] too!
