Okay, if the place on the right above is Montpelier, Vermont (one l!), where is the place on the left? It's certainly not Montpelier, Bristol nor Melksham and though my memories of Montpelier, France are distant, it does look remarkably British.

Except there are 2 men in the cab and the lights are white, implying it is approaching the camera.  If that is the case it is driving on the right.
Dunno, looks rather like an island platform to me.

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.

Two pictures in places of remarkably similar names with no chance of through ticketing. Both pictures from my recent collection. Neither in France and neither in England.
Ah! Everyone's just assuming, as I was, that the white bus was Montpelier, Vermont. But Grahame hasn't said it was. Maybe it was Newport, Rhode Island.

I will admit to reading back what I posted several time, trying to work out why everyone thought it was a continuation of Montpel(l)ier.   

Yes - Newport (South Wales) and Newport (Rhode Island) on 3rd October and on 16th September.
