Park Royal Vehicles Ltd.

This final installment of the Park Royal Vehicles series features scenes from around the Park Royal Vehicles factory in Abbey Road, north-west London. These pictures are contemporary with the buses shown in parts 1 to 3 of this series, that is from around 1950.

"Flat Packed" buses? Yes, Park Royal Vehicles were exporting bus body kits in flat packs over 50 years ago. Go to Page 2 to see a series of pictures showing the packing process.

The print quality of the material I have worked from was not of top quality, and this is reflected in the quality of the pictures below, but they do illustrate the activities being carried out in the factory at that time.

The text accompanying the pictures is Park Royal's.
