I Finally Catch A New Bus for London in the Balls Pond Road
I only managed to catch it with a camera, as I had my shopping with me and was just going home.
At least though they are not a figment of London’s imagination.
My last memory of it as it crossed towards Islington, was of the conductor balanced at the bottom of the back stairs, just like he would have been on an old Routemaster.
I should say, as I was taking the picture, I was approached by a well-dressed black guy about half my age, who’d just got off the bus. He was truly enthusiastic about the bus.
So does good design appeal to everyone?
