Goodbye! The old Routemaster hop-on hop-off red busses are moving rapidly toward their final runs. I know that they take two people to crew, are dangerous, and impossible for the handicapped, but they'll still be missed. Luckily they will apparently still run on some selected Heritage routes. Search them out.
The No. 9, pictured to the left was boarded almost daily by our family when we lived near Kensington High Street in the 1970's.
You could get almost anywhere worth going from Hammersmith to the Tower.
