3. UU6646
In the discussion on my photo of T1 at Hornchurch Garage Peter Stobart commented that it should have been the original LGOC T1. I cannot manage a photo of that, but as a next best thing, here is one of the same batch, T31 UU6646, at Chiswick in March or April 1956. Most of these buses were withdrawn by 1949, although a few (most of which had been refurbished) survived until 1953 on a route at Walton-on-Thames where a weight restriction precluded use of anything else.

16. JN825
Southend Regal 205, JN825, in Warrior Square. From the blinds it appears to be on the Warrior Square-Southchuch service which ran between January 1942 (when the trams ceased east of Southchurch Avenue) and April 1942 (when the last trams were withdrawn). Presence of wartime white paint on wings and masked headlights also confirms that photo taken during the war.
