London Transport 1761, GLB761, a SA3 class trolleybus seen on route 693. It was an 8' wide AEC 664T with a Metro Cammell 72 seat body, new in March 1943, part of an order for Johannesburg but diverted to London because of shipping difficulties.
1761 was withdrawn 3 months after his photo was taken when route 693 was converted to bus operation as part of the third trolleybus conversion stage on 18th August 1959.
