10. Return of the trolleybus?
Noticed a comment there by one Dave Ward:
One thing missing from that picture is streets chock-a-block with parked cars & delivery vehicles. A trolley bus only has so much leeway from the overhead cables. These days, with continual roadworks and closures they would be at a considerable disadvantage compared to a “self powered” bus, which can easily take an alternative route, if needed.
Downside to everything, no?

The criticism was the ‘awful’ dress sense in flapper times – ‘bags’ was one description with lowered waistlines and shortened legs – early sackcloth feminism?
As for the bonnets – I quite like them except that they can look like battle helmets at times. [And in answer to the unasked question – front row, second from right of course.]
7. Chuckles’s supper went trad
… whereas my brek I may have wrecked by putting in too much thyme:
However, the desired grain separation was achieved and overherbing with other herbs balanced the taste out.
