Trolleybuses for West London Logo

Yesterday Once More

Many Internet users seek out pictures of the places where they grew up, but are unlikely to think of visiting transport sites, let alone one dealing with trolleybuses! We would like as many people as possible to discover this web site to learn how drastically the Uxbridge Road corridor will change if the tram scheme is constructed.

This selection of monochrome pictures from the past is incorporated into this web site to trap surfers who will perhaps explore other pages to be found here. All of the pictures were taken in the early 1960's and are the work of a number of photographers.

Looking east at the Hayes End intermediate terminus [Hayes End Road junction is behind the photographer]. The White Hart PH is no more, having been replaced by recent flats development, but the pub sign post and frame minus the sign itself remains in the central reserve in less-than-splendid isolation and complete irrelevance.
