An early AEC Regal T-class I guess?

Bus expert required.

Except that the bonnet number shows a "L" just to the left of the woman in the fur coat's arm. The correct code for an AEC Regal throughout the 30s and 40s was "T", so we either have a deliberately misleading anomaly or something else.

The code "L" was always Leyland, and this is undoubtedly an AEC, so as a suggestion, maybe this is an "LT" which is a "Long T", otherwise an AEC Renown. Unfortunately the waiting passengers are obscuring the lower half of the bus so we can't count the wheels.

Je suggère aussi LGOC/LPTB London, class LT (3 essieux): (LT = 1 ou 2 étages à 3 ess.)

AEC Renown 664, carrosserie LGOC Chiswick (1931-32)= 202 bus dans plusieurs sous-séries type LTL (L = 1 étage)
On peut tenter de compter les 5 glaces 1/2, marquées par les joints en toiture, après l'homme en clair et chapeau (cachant la porte)
L'homme en noir devant lui cache l'indice de ligne latéral, en haut de la 1° baie
Noter les phares occultés: it's war!

Une belle bête, comme les mêmes en DD 2 étages!

(La class T, à 2 essieux, ressemblait en effet à ces bus)

D'accord!

I have in my garage headlight dimmers similar to those shown on the bus.

I did wonder about counting the windows but did not have a picture of a Renown single decker except the LTC coach with Weymann bodywork of 1937/8 which have only 5 bays.
