The ambrotype's life span was very short, wide-spread use was less than ten years, but produced a vast collection of beautiful images.While the name ambrotype was derived from the Greek word ambro, meaning imperishable, it was still a delicate, easily damaged photograph. The chassis of this Aldershot & District vehicle dates from 1954, but the body we see ("MCW" in the PSVC listings) was fitted in 1967.The seating is of the B40F layout, and we see it in the Alton Rally on 18 July 2010.One unfortunate feature of the Alton Rally and Fleetwood Tram Sunday is that they often clash and, even with what some of my former colleagues used to call an ‘optimistic’ style of driving, even I can’t manage both in the day! I used to travel on these, and their cousins with the older style of bodywork with an opening window for the driver.One A&D feature on OPO buses was to have just a single seat on the front nearside to allow more room for passengers paying the driver, but at the time I was a regular traveller, these buses were crew-operated.See the Photographers used many of the same pieces and methods for packaging an ambrotype as they did for the daguerreotype (see Daguerreotype page).Nearly all ambrotypes will have a preserver (if the packaging is original).
The ambrotype was packaged in the same manner as the daguerreotype, encased with a mat, top glass, and preserver; and then placed in a case. While the ambrotype is typically cased like a daguerreotype, it does not exhibit the same look. Rotating the image will not cause the image to reflect like a mirror or look like a negative.From 1859 onward, the preserver exhibited elaborate designs, with bulges at the corners and in the middle of the edges.There are three different glass examples in the ambrotype.Although Dennis abandoned plans for volume production of the model, there was very little wrong with the Dominant apart from its excessive weight (a characteristic shared by the the contemporary Regal IV and Royal Tiger), and Aldershot & District kept HOU 900 in front line service for fourteen years.In 1953 the company bought a solitary example of the Guy Arab LUF, which it retained in service until 1965, but purchased no more.
