EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a moment in time at the historic Spaniards Inn on Hampstead Heath in London, as a No. 210 bus navigates the narrow gap between the inn and the old Toll House at the junction of Spaniards Road and Hampstead Lane. The scene is set in the 1960s, as indicated by the vintage bus and the lack of modern traffic signals or other contemporary features. The Spaniards Inn, a popular public house with a rich history dating back to the 16th century, stands proudly in the background, its timber-framed facade a testament to the area's past. The inn, which was once a coaching stop on the old turnpike road, has long been a favorite watering hole for locals and visitors alike, with its picturesque location offering breathtaking views of the heath and the city beyond. The old Toll House, which once collected tolls from travelers passing through the area, adds to the historic charm of the scene. The narrow gap between the two structures, just wide enough for the bus to pass through, highlights the close proximity of these historic buildings and the bustling activity of the road. A car waits patiently at the side of the road for the bus to clear the way, adding to the sense of movement and life in the scene. The photograph, taken by renowned photographer John Gay, beautifully captures the essence of a bygone era, when horse-drawn carriages gave way to buses and the world moved at a slower pace.
