DamonI believe Newman Street was a data processing centre at some stage maybe 1960's when a desktop computer was about the same size as a Routemaster. The L.G.O.C. had a training school in Newman Street although the location is not certain as the offices leased by London Transport were a later re-build from the 1960' or 1970's. The training school moved to Chiswick in about 1930 together with the other training school at Millman's Street, Chelsea (former London Road Car Company premises). There was also a training school at Camberwell in L.G.O.C. days although I'm not sure if this was at the bus garage. Another building in Newman Street was occupied by British Trasnport Advertising.
