Post-war this was the St Albans Co-op grocery shop; I can't say if that was its purpose at the time of the photograph.

I believe that this should be "Sherrif's Mill", a corn mill.

The Wrestlers Bridge (named after the nearby pub) carrying the then Great North Road over the railway. The bridge collapsed on 20 February 1966 and had to be completely demolished; it was never rebuild for road traffic but replaced with a pedestrian bridge.

This field was the site of the new London Transport bus garage which was opened in 1959. This replaced the old 'National' garage over the road. It was a very modern garage and even had flowerbeds I seem to remember. The site is now a housing development.

This is the bus garage operated by the National Omnibus & Transport Co. It was built in c1922 to run local bus services on behalf of the London General Omnibus Company. There's a single decker bus at the back of the garage. National Omnibus had a complicated history but basically it was absorbed into London General Country Services in 1932 and became part of the London Transport Country Bus and Green Line Coach Division in 1933. This garage was in use until 1959 when a brand-new garage was opened for London Transport (LT) almost opposite next to the railway. London Country Buses took over the London Transport services in 1970. However both bus garages are now history and the sites have been put to other uses. The 1959 garage site is now a housing estate. Anyone remember the old green RT double deckers on the 303 and 303A routes?

Hatfield is on the main east coast railway line, about 20 miles north of Kings Cross. The town was also on the line of the old Great North Road to Edinburgh. So here we see two major transport routes just a few yards apart (on the right side of the pic) In 1928 the town was a small country town in Hertfordshire though the pic shows what a large influence the railway had even in small communities for much of the 20th century.



Hatfield Station in this pic even had a private waiting room (if my memory is correct)for Lord Salisbury who lived in nearby Hatfield House (not on pic) and who used the train to go to London for his parliamentary business.



Hatfield in those days was grouped around the station and the Great North Road, but it was expanding in the area to the left of the main line. After the war it really grew in size as one of London's New Towns.



Also in this picture is the bus garage recently opened in 1922 by the National Omnibus & Transport Co on behalf of the London General. The General and National had entered into an agreement for National to develop services north of London on behalf of National. National provided the crews and General the garages and buses.



So, for me this picture is full of transport interest showing the influence of the railway and the emerging influence of the motorbus (the bus garage is not there on an equivalent pic of 1920)

The photo also shows the Great North Road, a War Memorial and a statue together with more mundane features such as full washing lines which tends to indicate that the photo was taken on a Monday. So many steam locomotives and mainly coal wagons. The track layout has been much simplified today and power is mainly provided from the overhead electrical system. It is worthy of consideration.

This photo is remarkable for the number of steam locomotives which can be seen. There are at least ten in the photo. Can you spot them? Are there more?
