CFFC: White or cream colors

I know Cee loves transport in her challenges but we’re going to start with some buildings – in this case an old Odeon Cinema approaching the end of its life…

…no longer showing films, having closed in 1964, it spent a number of years as a car showroom and a furniture store. It was demolished in 2013.

Central house – Finchley Central…

The white is going cream/dirty and the reinforcing bars behind the facade are leaking their rusty residue down the face of each level – ironically adding so much character to a bland 60’s building.

Cream and White…

…The National Bus Company painted it’s coaches white, so here we have an Eastern National Bristol RE with Plaxton bodywork sitting in Peterborough alongside a cream liveried Bedford YRQ belonging to Everett’s of Atterby. The latter was a rare vehicle, the Bedford YRQ chassis and Duple Viceroy Express body combination only ever being ordered 97 times.
