Six wheel pneumatic double decker omnibus pictured in the 1920s

The luxury travelling for the general public, the new six wheel pneumatic double decker omnibus pictured in the 1920s on the first trip from Cricklewood to Grosvenor Place in London. The London General Omnibus (LGOC) first introduced 3-axle / 6-wheel vehicles in 1927 with the LS ('London Six') double deckers. Produced by the Daimler / AEC combine, they were the first double deckers with pneumatic tyres. There were two main potential advantages to the 6-wheel arrangement. Firstly there was a legal restriction at the time on the permitted weight per axle, which meant that the increase to six wheels would allow a heavier, longer, and therefore larger capacity vehicle to be used. Secondly the two rear axles could both be driven by the engine, providing more traction. AFP PHOTO/SPORT & GENERAL PRESS AGENCY LONDON / AFP PHOTO / SPORT & GENERAL PRESS AGENCY
