- Bricklayer's Arms Depot 1932.
Who remembers the old Trams and RouteMasters
Two vehicles like these are what I learnt to drive in when I worked at the Bricklayers Arms Depot.(late 1950s). They could turn on a sixpence but boy were they cold in the Winter,with holes everywhere. They Shook you to pieces, especially on cobble roads and the gear lever on the first vehicle was on the right, drivers side by the door. If you caught your wedding tackle, (and I did ) on that getting out of the cab it really made your eyes water.
