North Road & 'Queen Mary'

I have chosen this as the first image of the blog, from Andy Brooks collection.
The bus is a Leyland  PD3 'Queen Mary' which the Southdown company ran during the 1950's and 1960's.
The view taken from the parapet of the Luxor cinema shows North Road and the junction of Sompting Road.
In the far distance is 'The Clump' as Lancing Ring was known. Now a Local Nature Reserve.
The Public House was then known as the Railway Inn.
From almost the same position on the roof of the Luxor, this was taken in 2006. The traffic has increased somewhat.
If we remain on the roof and swing round we see the Station entrance and then part of the Co-op Supermarket and now operated by Asda stores Ltd
