Two General B-type buses outside the Royal Standard public house in 1915 The route number looks like 1m. I wonder what the chap up at the window was doing?

Mick Webber says:- the two B types at the Royal Standard pub, are on route 48 which ran to Golders Green.

Another photograph of MB30. VLW 30G. on route 108 at Blackheath Standard. This is an offside of the road stand, and is still in use by some short working buses today.
