Why Londoners Love The Double Decker Bus No.1

Sometimes they looked like faces on wheels. There you go, changed from 'Routemaster' (mistake acknowledged!)

I just know someone will point out that's not actually a Routemaster...

It's posts such as this that make you realise that much of the Internet is false and misleading. What thoughts were going through your head when you combined the wonderful transport picture with the Heading. It does make me cross. Grrhh.
What next, Towering ships sailing under the raised "London Bridge" [pun intended.]

I stand corrected but am slightly unrepentant - to me all old buses are Routemasters and it's a nicer word than 'double-decker bus'. Yes, I know technically the Routemaster came later and had a removable top that could be lifted from the chassis and replaced, but isn't that really just for transport geeks?

I don't know, admin. I don't think I would have watched that old telly programme if it were called 'Here Come The Routemasters'.

And as the wife of a "transport geek" who agreed that "the radiator gives it away" and this is too old to be a Routemaster I would like to say that accuracy is very important when there is likely to be someone out there whose special subject is the one in question. (He admired your James Bond in the previous post, by the way.)
