Majority of us used London Transport buses 109, and 159 routes. With the RTs, and came along every 4 minutes in those days.

Then walked down Nine Elms road, passed The Brook, and Adas Cafe, which was a small shack, and then through the gates past the timekeepers office. And then past the Shedmasters offices, where rife rumours concerning 2 Clerks (male + female) carried on their own filing system Shocked Laughing

Of course you could always pick up a Steak & Kidney pie, Bacon Roll from Ada, and later in the day, after P&D, congregating in The Brook.

Oh, happy days! Smile

There was and still are 3 large council estates plus a Peabody estate around the old Nine Elms Depot i would have thought most would have lived in them.
