An MD on service 192. Plumstead Woodlands Estate to Lewisham, via Griffin Road, Woolwich, Herbert Road, Shooters Hill Road, and Blackheath. Sandy Hill Road was one way for buses, down to Woolwich, other routes were 53 and 51. The way up was via Burrage Road and Bloomfield Road, the 192 first coming to Woolwich then along Vincent Road to Burrage Road. The 53 and 51 going through Woolwich in the opposite direction entered Burrage Road from Plumstead Road. Previously the 192  went via Woolwich New Road, Anglesea Road and Bloomfield Road up to Herbert Road. Down was vi Sandy Hill Road including the steep hill back to Woolwich New Road. 

Sandy Hill Road is now one way to all traffic, and there is a mini roundabout at the junction in the above picture, and at the top of the hill in the picture below.

This is the last Sunday on which the route operated, 25 October 1981. It was converted to the 291 Hopper bus for the route from Woolwich to Plumstead Woodlands Estate, and from Woolwich to Lewisham it became the 178.
