Days of Seeing Red- Stories of Everyday Life on the Midland


This book is a compiled of stories and anecdotes depicting the everyday life of drivers, conductors and conductresses on the Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company, better known as the Midland Red, during the 1960s and 1970s, as told by the authors, who as young men, worked both as drivers, and one as a conductor. Over 50 stories and including over 60 pictures, sketches and cartoons, this book will show you what it was like to be a 'busman' or a 'buswoman' in those, now, so very far-off days. Or maybe, if you were on 'the Red' yourself, driving or conducting on a D5, D7 or a D9, you would like to re-live those memories once again, hopefully through this publication. This is an A4 book with a glossy soft cover and consist of 96 pages of the adventures showing the fortunes and misfortunes and the ups and downs of everyday life on 'the Red'.
