Looks a bit like Newport Street bus station (Worcester) to me – but is it? I recognise route 316 from my childhood (Stourbridge- Kidderminster- Worcester), but it's not listed in the Ian Allan fleet-book of 1967.

Yes, without any doubt that is Newport Street bus station; the 316 ran between Kidderminster and Stourbridge via Norton and the 315 via Hagley. I am just old enough to remember Stourbridge BHA FEDDs and AD2s working into Worcester on these routes!

Thanks, Tim.
