December 12 Extra

London

Stockwell Bus Garage

Opened in 1952 after nearly 4 years of planning and building with many materials short of supply
and problems re-housing residents of the houses that stood on the site.
Stockwell garage is a listed building, and when built was a masterpiece of architecural design incorporating
a new roof structure that didn't need supports which enabled for a 73,350sq ft unobstructed parking space
that can houses 200 buses .

Well I prefer this one, though these are the new buses.

Lovely curved architecture, in contrast with the angular shapes of the buses.
Thanks for sharing...:-)
