TQ1476 : The Last Trolleybus

taken 56 years ago, near to Isleworth, Hounslow, Great Britain

The Last Trolleybus.
The Last Trolleybus.
This photo, taken at Isleworth Depot, was the last trolleybus to work over the route 657 Hounslow to Shepherds Bush. Crowds of people turned out on a cool May evening in 1962 to welcome the crew back to their home depot. The vehicle itself had been packed with passengers and a party atmosphere prevailed.
