    In fairness, a lot of busses always seemed to be in service for many years, so an old bus might not that be too odd I suppose.

    Looking at the dress the lady with the pushchair is wearing. That clearly puts it in the right era (unless contrary to popular belief, Hull were ahead of their time)

    It is later than 1967 - that is when the folding stroller started to be mass-produced. Maybe Hull city council ran a very old bus fleet.

    Edit: I found something that said many routemasters were purchased s/h following deregulation of bus services in 1986 because they were cheap. Hull was one city in which they ran.

    The site is called Castel Camping Le Brevedent near Blangy Le Chateau. It's one of the smaller Castel sites and the 'chateau' at the heart of it is actually just a former hunting lodge - the main chateau having been destroyed in WWII. We haven't been since about 2014 because, well, holidays are not something we can manage just now but we went every year for three or four weeks to meet up with my brother and family for a good eight years on the trot, always nabbing that spot by the water. It's a family run site and we loved it and I know a lot of people who went back year on year.

    My kid sister spent two years at Uni there before dropping out. Learnt a lot of things, unfortunately none related to the course! She then went to London and trained as a nurse at St George's. Never put it into use although graduated. Wasted years.

    No I meant the lady put the photo in the era that Keith said, 1987 not the era of the bus.

    Yes to all the above, they (Route Master buses ) were sold off to be used in other cities, at the time I found it odd that that they still had the _LT 'personal' number plates though with the routes in London going to independent operators I suppose there was no reason to hold on to them.

    Understood - hence the comment on the buggy. Plus it seems some route-masters were acquired in 1986!


    Edit: didn't see Keith's post. I was talking on the phone to a nice lady at HMRC ! Thanks Keith

    A glam approach to a bit of shelter - outside the Chinese House - Brussels.

    An old one. I'm feeling a bit sentimental at the moment. That time of the year when memories come back unbidden.
