I got this postcard at a souvenir shop. The back reads:
On 30th December 1952, the driver of a bus on route 78, travelling over Tower Bridge in the evening, noticed the road was rising in front of his bus. The bridge was being raised. It was too late to brake as the bus might have slithered over the edge. He put his foot down hard on the accelerator and jumped the gap and ensured his passengers were safe.
Let’s see Robbie Madison stick that landing, huh?
