A bus in Bolton, Greater Manchester, England is seen here on the 8th of April, 1973.
Bolton – once a mill town – was a hub for Flemish weavers as early as the 14th century.
The vehicle in the photograph is painted in the colours of the former Bolton Corporation municipal buses, and is seen opposite the bus station, on Black Horse Street.
This photograph, dated the 22nd of October, 1973 shows people demonstrating in Washington D.C., calling for the impeachment of US President Richard Nixon.
This was less than two weeks after the resignation of Vice President Agnew because of criminal charges of bribery, tax evasion and money laundering. Agnew was later convicted.
Nixon resigned in August of 1974 to avoid almost certain impeachment.
The aftermath of a car bombing carried out by the IRA outside the Old Bailey in London. 8th March, 1973.
On the 2nd of August, 1973, three boys smoking in a disused kiosk in Douglas, Isle of Man caused a fire that killed between fifty and fifty-three people and injured eighty others.
The fire tore through the Summerland leisure centre, where no immediate attempt was made to evacuate, and the fire department was not called until twenty minutes after the blaze began. When panic broke out, people trapped inside found that the fire doors were locked.
One wall of the building was left after the rest was demolished in 1975, as there are concerns its removal might cause the collapse of a cliff nearby.
The disaster caused authorities to significantly change building regulations and fire safety procedures.
