Details: Included in today's batch of photos are a couple of gems from Malcolm Millichip, taken in either 1959 or 1960. The first shows Austin K4 dropside lorry 913AS at a location which is readily identifiable as the forecourt of Hounslow Bus Garage. This lorry was new in 1949 and spent most of its life at Parsons Green until sold in 1961. Notably it had a couple of spells out of use, including a six-month period from late 1950. Perhaps it was accident damaged. As can be seen, the lorry had a half-tilt fitted and wore the standard Chiswick green livery.

Clive GI think you'll find that all these Austin K4s except for the last one were delicensed in a similar way at times during 1950/1/2/3 after being sent to Aldenham Works or various bus garages. I suspect there was a modification required by LT, and maybe this is why no more were bought. What intrigues me with this photo is that it shows the bottom half of the radiator covered, and I've not seen that before in any other pictures of this type.Sat 22/12/2018, 12:00
