  • The rear quarter of the car in the foreground looks suspiciously like a Vauxhall Cresta, possibly one of Jack Allen’s taxis.

  • This bus was one of those based at the garage on the corner of Hogg Lane and London Road in Grays after London Transport took over from Eastern National in 1951. The 371 routes replaced the Eastern National route 31 which ran between Jim’s Cafe at Tilbury Feenan HIghway and Grays.
