It is interesting the things that you can learn, even after all this time and after seeing so many photos!

I did not realise that the Mack buses had two doors!

Regards,

Paul.

I didn't even notice it when I posted the photos!

You can just see the hinges in the previous photo of 51 and 52.

Would it be an emergency exit door?

Cheers

In 1925 there were 40 of these Macks - Numbers 51 -90. The next new bus came in 1935. There were a number of second hand buses acquired in the interim from takeovers.
