The Ribble Motor Services display at the Harris Museum has brought up many memories for a former apprentice.

Eddie Livesey, 87, Garstang, was employed by the firm in 1946 at the age of 14 and worked for the company for ten years.

He took the job so he could follow in his father’s footsteps who was employed by the company for 25 years.

The exhibit launched on 19 January to celebrate the services’ 100 year anniversary.

The launch saw the return of some of the original Ribble buses to the flag market.
