Quite a number of pictures at the Mitcham Road Junction so they have been grouped together. Items to particularly note is the friendly gesture from motorist GWW 369; the style of pram [like the demise of the trolleybus, was shortly to be changed for ever] and every traction supply pole with a conversion notice posted on it! What a relaxed attitude to parking in 1959 with a randomly abandoned scooter on a 'busy' roundabout. Still there wasn't so much traffic then compared with today.
