London Transport 1757, GLB757, a SA3 class trolleybus seen on route 691, with another SA3, 1764, behind. It was an 8' wide AEC 664T with a Metro Cammell 72 seat body, new in January 1943, part of an order for Johannesburg but diverted to London because of shipping difficulties.
Both 1757 and 1764 were withdrawn 3 months after his photo was taken when route 691 was converted to bus operation as part of the third trolleybus conversion stage on 18th August 1959.
John also photographed SA3s 1747, 1748, 1749, 1750, 1754, 1756, 1758, 1759, 1761 and 1762 that day.
