The Anonymous Widower

Come In Number 38, Your Time Has Come!

I saw several New Buses for London or Routemasters today, as I travelled the other way on a 38 to and through Hackney.


But they weren’t the remnants of the original Hackney Eight, but pristine ones, just off the boat from Northern Ireland.

Coming back from the Angel, I got one of the new buses and the driver said with a big beaming smile on his face, that from Monday all buses on the 38 will be New Routemasters.

So now visitors to the capital and those that live here for that matter, will be able to take their partner, boyfriend or girlfriend to romantic Clapton Pond, as I surmised here.

On a serious note, If you were thinking of opening a cafe, then Clapton Pond surely is the place!

Also if I was Hackney’s Tourism Officer, I’d be making sure everything was ready.

Rumour also has it too, that a well known estate agent has jacked up the prices of all properties near to a 38 bus stop by two percent.

  1. Bring it on! But is it beyond the realms of possibility that newer versions might have windows that open, like the originals?

  2. The new ones are much better as the air-conditioning works.
