CMMC – August Alphabet must have two M’s in the word

Ok – Back on timetable with this entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge 🙂

Places can be handy for this sort of challenge, so lets start with Mitcham Junction…

…A photo I took back in 1987. The station has changed a bit since then with the introduction of the Croydon Tramlink, so I really must visit to get an up to date photo 🙂

Buildings are useful too. This is the headquarters of the International Maritime Organisation…

…It is located on Albert Embankment, London.

Another London location, Commercial Street…

…It passes outside the City of London to the east connecting Shoreditch to Whitechapel via Spitalfields and was an important area for industry.

Finally, here’s a Chiltern Queens coach. An AEC Reliance that entered service with Frames in 1963…

…The bodywork is an example of the Duple Commodore, a model that was only produced in 1963/4, so a very rare vehicle. It was still in daily use in 1980 when I took this photo 🙂

  1. I love the coach! I know so little about vehicles but I took one look at it and presumed it was an early 60’s model. I know I’m tremendously nostalgic these days, but I favor the appearance and would love to have more “retro” designs rather than the sleeker, newer models. I suppose that’s because I’m old, too! LOL!

  2. Glad you like it Debra 🙂 Sadly it long since went to the breakers. There are a lot of older vehicles that made it into preservation and can be seen at shows around the country 🙂
