Victoria Station

D70. LC 5007. on Vanguards service 24 looking very similar to todays route. This one looks like Victoria to Hampstead. Now it goes to Pimlico.

Michael Wadman says:

I was browsing your site and noticed the interesting photo of Milnes-Daimler
LC5007 outside Victoria station onwhich you suggest dates from the 'twenties. I think that it was actually somewhat older than that. Route 24 started on 5th May 1910 but the
Milnes-Daimlers were all replaced by B Types during 1911 and 1912. Vanguard
itself had been taken over by the LGOC (who allocated the fleet number D70 -
Vanguard didn't use them) in 1908.

Service 38 at Victoria Station forcourt. The route looks similar to todays, but it is extended from Clapton Pond to Epping Forest.

Michael also says of this picture:

Of the second photo on that page, AN 440 was a Staker-Squire new to the

Great Eastern London Suburban Tramways & Omnibus Co Ltd, who were taken over
by the LGOC in 1911.

See Victoria Station with XMS Red Arrows outside in 1968.

With thanks for photographs to Carlton Blaxill
