Malcolm has unearthed another trio of service vehicle photos he took in about 1960. First up is this view of Bedford OLBD lorry 656B at Friars Stile Road in Richmond Hill. The crew of the lorry was working on the bus stop flag mounted on a lamp post. Friars Stile Road was the terminus for very short bus route 235, which ran from Richmond Station and had a running time of just six minutes. It worked from 1955 until 1966 when it was apparently taken over by Isleworth Coaches. 656B had been new in 1946 and had worked for a variety of departments before settling with Works and Buildings at Parsons Green in 1951. It remained there for almost nine years, being withdrawn and sold in 1960. Note that the quarter tilt cover appears to be of sheet metal. It is sometimes not clear on older photos but canvas tilt covers certainly became more standard later on.
