Mess, the 42 was essentially a short working of the 43, which operated at peak periods to enhance capacity between Northern Baths and Beastmarket Hill/Processional Way.

Is that the building that was the Registry Office in it's later years? If so it was, before the war, the offices of the civil service department responsible for administering Poor Relief, or the Dole, for that area of the city and at the outbreak of hostilities in 1939 one of the departments tasked with issuing identity cards. Dad was an Assistant Relieving Officer working there at that time and married Mum in September 1939 and their honeymoon was spent writing out identity documents.

Ah! I recognise it now. It was the Registry Office. Still there, looking pretty much the same now as it was then according to GSV.
