It's six days before the implementation of London Transport's Stage 3 of 'Operation Tramaway' which also saw the end of Feltham cars on London's streets. Stage 3 saw the closure of tram routes 16, 18  - Westminster to Purley -  and route 42 from South Croydon to Thornton Heath. Depicted here at the Purley terminus on 1/4/51 are a pair of Feltham cars awaiting their turn to have their trolley poles rotated before heading back through Croydon to Westminster.
