German Conversation – April

Nearly 100 years ago a trade publication in Hanover reported the development of a triple-decker city bus.This was a surprise to readers as triple deckers had never been seriously considered because their high centre of gravity would make them unstable and there would be the risk of hitting trees and bridges.There was a photograph with the article;realistic-looking but mocked up (quite an achievement in pre Photo Shop days).The date of the magazine was 1st April 1926.

No joke for the German conversation group which has been suspended.
