A number 10A general bus in the forecourt of the Old Crown Hotel, Loughton, just prior to the First World War.

This B-type was considered to be the first mass-produced bus and built in Walthamstow by the London General Omnibus Company.

Its route included Stratford and London Bridge and had a top speed of 16mph, which was above the legal speed limit at that time of 12mph.

Lopping Hall can just be seen on the far right.
