Clapham & Clapham Junction
|A very busy scene at Clapham Junction with LCC car 341 making the journey
to the Embankment via Westminster. When it was given a route number it
became route 2, route 4 went via Blackfriars. On the right of the picture
can be seen the well known establishment of Arding & Hobbs, which can
still be found at Clapham Junction.

I spent my early years living in the vicinity of Clapham Junction,
and as time went by, having an interest in local public transport I would
like to politely inform you that the route that car 341 is on became route
26. Routes 2 and 4 were, as you correctly stated travelled by way of
Westminster and Blackfriars respectively but from the Clapham Common area.

Car 341. This is definitely route 26 which in LCC days was Kew Bridge-Hammersmith-Wandsworth-Clapham
Junction-Vauxhall-Westminster Bridge- Embankment-Blackfriars Bridge-Hop
Exchange (London Bridge) returning by the same route. The outer end of
course became trolley route 628 in 1937. 2 and 4 were Embankment circulars
running Wimbledon-Tooting-Clapham-Oval then 2 clockwise via Westminster-Embankment-Blakcfriars-Elephant
and 4 anti-clockwise.
|LCC car 173 in Clapham High Street. On the right of the picture is
the Clapham Dining Rooms and on the left the Plough Inn. The Plough Inn
can still be found at 196 Clapham High Street.
