I-SPY: A London Bus

A post today from Diamond Geezer (see link on left) about The Last Routemaster. OMG, it’s a 159! One of my childhood buses. Bet I could still take a virtual ride on it in my head.

And she got on another bus, the very same bus that had taken her daily to and from the school, the number seventeen, a number once endowed with proprietory delight, and still familiar beyond all other familarities...

From Jerusalem the Golden by Margaret Drabble. I wish someone would reprint it; the pages of my copy are almost too brown to read.
