End of the Road

Today’s guardian looks at the history of the Routemaster buses running in London, which will probably soon be replaced by more modern double deckers and continental “bendy buses”. One conductor heralded that she had never seen anyone fall off the back of one of her buses in 25 years. Small comfort for my friend John Kiff, who stumbled over and was flung out of the bus headwards onto Shepherds Bush gyratory. 12 stiches later he was nursing a very sore head. They are as much a part of London as much as Big Ben and the wheel, but they are cramped, dirty and can be dangerous to your own personal wellbeing…. Sorry John.
