Putney Bridge..

Is a bridge crossing of the River Thames in west London, linking Putney on the south side with Fulham to the north..It was constructed by John Waddell of Edinburgh, whose tender of £240,433 (equivalent to £21,627,638 in 2015) was accepted on 15 April 1882.. It is 700 ft long (210 m) and 43 ft wide (13 m), and was opened by the Prince (later King Edward VII) and Princess of Wales on 29 May 1886..In 1933, the bridge was widened to its present 3 carriageways..Putney Bridge is often very busy on Saturdays when Fulham F.C. are playing at home as this is the main way for fans to cross the river..In March 1953, British serial killer and necrophiliac John Christie (8 April 1899 – 15 July 1953) was arrested on Putney Bridge..Christie was born in Northowram near Halifax, West Riding of Yorkshire..On 11 January 1950, Evans was put on trial for the murder of his daughter, the prosecution having decided not to pursue a second charge of murdering his wife..Tom is on Battersea Bridge NOT Putney Bridge and about to throw two very valuable shotguns in the river, while his friends try to call him..Putney Bridge tube station Fare zone 2 Number of platforms 3.....

London General East Lancs Vyking..

Peak vehicle requirement 23-London Buses route 93 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England.. Running between Putney Bridge station and North Cheam, it is operated by London General..Another extension on 23 November 1927 took the route to South Wimbledon station on Mondays to Fridays peak hours and Saturdays and Sundays.. From 15 May 1929, the 93 was withdrawn between Harrow Weald and Craven Park, being replaced by the 18 over this section..From 7 June 1934 it was reduced to run daily from Southall to Morden with a Monday to Friday peak hours and evening, Saturday and Sunday service to Cheam..The outbreak of War on 3 September 1939 meant reductions in London's bus services, especially when paralleling electric transport..London Transport's reshaping plan commenced in 1966, bringing with it rationalisation of services and the introduction of One-Person Operation (OPO).. From 18 April 1970 part of the 93 was converted, when a new one-person operated 293 was introduced between Epsom and Morden Station..From 4 September 1982, the service was gradually converted from Routemaster (RM) operation to B20 Daimler Fleetline (D/DMS) crew mode in preparation for conversion to One Person Operation..This took place on 23 April 1983, removing the final crew-operation from Sutton Garage.. (Sutton was one of 4 London garages to become 100% OPO from this date)..From 11 November 1989, certain journeys on the 93 were extended from North Cheam to Sutton Garage.. These journeys have since discontinued with all buses to Sutton Garage running out of service..Michael Eddowes suggested in his book of 1955 that Christie was in a perfect position as a special police constable during the war to have committed many more murders than have been discovered...'ll be getting a new job shortly I shouldn't wonder.. They've asked me if I want to train as a manager or as a managing director or something, you know...
