Or...... is it a single deck Renault with a wartime gas bag on the roof?

My french is non-existent, but it is indeed a single deck Renault TN6 (or is rather TN6A?) with a modified roof.

There are are several of these listed here, but presumably they are not all the same?:

What he says, in essence, (hey, a French pun! Whooppee!), is that because petrol wasn’t easily available during the war, they fitted a rubber bag on the roof,to store enough town gas to render the bus able to continue work, with limitations. (That’s a very loose translation, but the best I can do 55 years after I passed O level French, (with distinction)).

translation is accurate enough to deserve a distinction too :)

Quote Coal gas is a flammable gaseous fuel made from coal and supplied to the user via a piped distribution system. It is produced when coal is heated strongly in the absence of air. Town gas is a more general term referring to manufactured gaseous fuels produced for sale to consumers and municipalities.

Coal gas contains a variety of calorific gases including hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane, ethylene and volatile hydrocarbons together with small quantities of non-calorific gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen.

Prior to the development of natural gas supply and transmission—during the 1940s and 1950s in the United States and during the late 1960s and 1970s in the United Kingdom and Australia—virtually all gas for fuel and lighting was manufactured from coal. Town gas was supplied to households via municipally owned piped distribution systems.

When every town had it's own gasworks and gasometers, usually a tar plant next door.

Thanks.

The little town in which I grew up had a district which contained both a tannery, and the gas works. Pungent!

Our house (built about 1860) still had gas lights, not used but available if there was an electricity cut. It was a source of interest to my brother and me if they had to be lit. There was no central heating, but every room had a fireplace, those in the bedrooms only in use if someone was ill. Also there was no hot water system, gas fired geysers over the sinks and bath provided the water for bathing or washing up, etc. As soon as they could afford it, my parents bought a washing machine with a built in electric water heater to save work for Mum.

The next house (built 1935) had no gas supply, being in a village without a gas works. Mum missed her gas cooker, but eventually got used to the electric oven, and didn’t change back when the natural gas was piped through the village in the late 60s. Still no central heating though.

When I bought the house (built 1958) in which we still live 46 years later, it had no central heating, there were electric radiators in the bathroom and kitchen, and a fireplace in the living room only. My Dad and I installed gas fired central heating, checked out by the local experts before we lit up, at the same time doing his house as well.
