London Airport (renamed as “Heathrow” about four years later)
Damage is assessed after a crash in Parliament Square.
Crowds gather to investigate a Toby Ale delivery truck which lies on its side after colliding with a number 88 Routemaster.
Not sure where this is. I have tried to research the route 88 which was slightly longer in the 1950’s heading towards Mitcham (as seen in the destination boards). I followed the rough route in streetview to try and find the church which would be a clear ID, especially with its high sides and small windows.
If anyone has any idea where this was please let me know.
There is another pic of a Toby Ales van on its side somewhere in Hammersmith I will try and locate.

With a thousand thanks to Stuart Crowle who almost instantly got back to me with the location! It was way off where I was looking.
Stamford Brook Road, W6. Links at the end of the post.
Thanks again Stuart!
