I noticed the chimney pots also, I did wonder if the actual tower with its ornate embellishments was actually the other side of the main road (seen in the distance). In any event whatever the building was, those windows are something really unique, I can't find them on any other buildings.The post #73 s showing chimney pots above the bus roof. I’m not sure churches had chimneys so more than likely a library,school or a community building.
I followed the No.8 bus route on a 1950s map, I could find nowhere this could have been taken. It looks like there is a passenger or conductor inside the bus.
