Quite informative GLC Propaganda film about how they are disposing of London's rubbish.
Creating massive amounts of smoke and acres of rubbish tips mainly!
Bizarre musical soundtrack which seems mainly to be one man on a stylophone and a tom tom drum.
All on You Tube.

Vauxhall FB Victor and PB Cresta on the lower deck, and, is that a Ponton Mercedes above?

Please note that I am running in a new MacBook Air, so things might be a bit odd for a while.

"Loads of old rubbish"

You mean cars that could've been a staple of car meets and what-not 40-ish years in to the future? :cry:

Following on from this depraved orgy of bin lorries, if anyone's interested in old English coaches - no, thought not :whistle: - there's a couple of festive treats from BBC4/iplayer from the Timeshift archive series - "The Golden Age of Coach Travel" and "The Modern Age of the Coach" which are either just broadcast or coming imminently. There's also one with fire engines "Blazes and Brigades: The Story of the Fire Service" but not currently available. Links here for anyone who wants to watch or post them.

The one on telephones ("Dial 'B' for Britain: The Story of the Landline") is excellent.

I passed my driving test in 1965, and was therefore responsible for the downfall of many of this type of car, either directly, or by assisting in their ruination. What you must also appreciate is that the car industry had sunk to an almost all-time nadir in this era, (not just in UK), manufacturers' built in obsolescence meaning that about 8-10 years was was much as you could expect before the tinworm reduced the things to wrecks anyway.

I watched the coaches one last night. A plethora of Bedford Duple, Burlingham Sunseekers, Queen Marys, BMMO C3s and Tilling Stevens. Not a VIN amongst 'em!

We already have "O Dreamland" on the site, if you like coaches it's worth looking at.

In answer to your cheek, "Yes, Me!". Coaches provide not only an interesting variety of chassis and coachwork, but also an interesting view of the way people used to live. I have all of the issues of "Classic Bus" apart from about the first three or four. These days, with all cars being almost identical, one needs to glean interest from somewhere.

Good heads up. May not surprise you that I am interested in all British Commercial vehicles and so are many others but not many are on here for some reason .
There is a strong Brit Truck community on Flickr (and probably on Facebook but I'm not :) )
