Does anyone know what year The Ambulance station opened, I didn't realise it had been there so long. our Union of ice was just around the corner in Lower Tower Street.

Those Ambulances are classy looking motors, judging by the radiator ornaments, which look like flying A's, they must be Austins.

I appears in Kellys between the 1950 and 1955 editions. In 1950 it was British Road Services on the site
