He writes: The conductress on the right is
Elizabeth Chapman who usually worked with her
brother, Joe, who was the driver (but Iím not

They were two of the 10 children of Mary Susanna
Chapman who ran the laundry for the Brine Baths

The photograph would have been taken around
In 1925, Elizabeth married George Myford who
worked at Harveyís tanyard. Their daughter,
Edith (the owner of the photograph), was
born in 1927.
Apparently all her motherís family worked for
Crosville - the bus company which operated
throughout Cheshire including routes locally -
and the family has a canteen of cutlery
inscribed by Crosland Taylor, one of the two
original owners of Crosville Motor Services.
While working as a conductress, Elizabeth
sometimes had to walk in front of the bus when
it was foggy.
