Seen best in this image, but also in Renown's & Bridgemasters above and the first Fleetline below, is the rather distinctive East Yorkshire moquette.  I have been asked about the supplier of this moquette, and given that there appears to be little mention of it elsewhere on the Internet I shall redress that here.  John Darwent kindly researched this, and I can confirm that Holdsworth was almost certainly the supplier.  Now part of the Camira Group, Holdsworth, that began in 1822, has, almost since its inception, been a major force in furnishing public transport.

Vehicle Interiors

  John Kaye comments that these are Roe photographs (R881 in the lower right corner of the first) and that they bear a strong resemblance to the interior of VKH 674 and could possibly be the interior of one of the batch of Leylands for East Yorkshire (VKH 668-673). Can you add to this?
