This is the final picture of Peter's 3 London Trolleybus pictures, again it probably dates from December 1954, the location is the North side of Kew Bridge The bus is LYH 880 which I assume was fleet number 880, an H1 Leyland chassis with Metro-Cammell body. The route is the 657 from Shepherds Bush to Houndslow, it went via Isleworth, Brentford, Kew, Chiswick and Goldhawk Road. Copyright Geoff Dowling & John Whitehouse.
