The location of this photo taken in about 1960 is still recognisable today, being the bus station / garage forecourt at Hounslow. Bedford KD truck 871B was the engineers vehicle here between 1959 and 1965, it having already served almost nine years in a similar role at Enfield. The short truck has a half-length tilt cover which appears to have metal sides/top with a canvas front. Note that the buses in the background include one on route 73. This route ran from Stoke Newington at the time, though it was normally run in two overlapping sections with very few through workings. Curiously the route has nearly always stuck to Stoke Newington as it's northern terminus, while the other end varied between Richmond, Hounslow, Kingston, Hampton Court, Hammersmith and (most recently) Oxford Circus.
