FLUENT ENGLISH

Let's enjoy English!

It's the weekend ~ YES! :-)

And a very ‘Good Morning’ to you - I hope you’re having a bright start to a fabulous
weekend.

We have been chitty-chatting about London over the past few days, so that put my mind
into ‘question mode’ (as I love to learn things) and I wanted to know more about the
infamous Red London Double-decker Bus and share it with you ...

If you haven’t been to London yet ~ oh, do you have one wonderful future vacation
memory waiting for you! I remember vividly when I visited London as a child for
the first time and jumped-on a moving double-decker, then went upstairs to enjoy
the view as it was an open-top bus ~ WHAT FUN MEMORIES!

Research has it that double-deckers were widely introduced in the 1820s
(even early attempts were built in France as far back as the 17th century).
These early versions were of course pulled by horses and they died a slow-death after
the combustion engine was built.
Various styles and types have been built and used over the years, but the infamous
"Red London Double-decker" as we know it, started in 1954 - model name
the “Routemaster”.
Do make sure you climb on to an open-top double-decker one day ~
you’ll love the experience ...
