Trolleybus at Westbourne Bridge


Just found this fantastic photo of a route 662 trolleybus at the junction of Harrow Road and Westbourne Bridge. The photo was taken in somewhat wintry conditions (and at odds with the time of writing of this blog!) on 2 January 1962. It was the last day of running for the route, and replaced largely by the no. 18 bus.


The low winter sun is glinting off of the front window of the bus, which is on its way to Wembley Stadium.

In the background is a fine old Courage pub, The Red Lion, now sadly demolisged.
