The LT Area - 1: South East London
The first volume in our new LT Area books looks at London Transport bus operations in the former L.T. Central Area of South East London Jim Blake has combed his extensive archives to provide fresh material, since the vast majority of the 360 or so photographs included herein have not been published before. Most of the pictures were taken between 1967, at the dawn of the disastrous “Reshaping” era, and 1984, when London Transport was destroyed by the Thatcher regime. However, there are also some more recent scenes, to give a flavour of how the area covered has changed subsequently.
By “South East London”, we mean those areas with London SE postcodes, together with those parts of West Kent incorporated into Greater London in 1965 and served anyway by red Central Area buses. We have basically taken the A23 Brighton Road as the dividing line between “South East” and “South West” London, though we are including most of the Croydon area routes, including those serving New Addington, in the “South West” volume.
