London Transport Recalled- A Pictorial Tribute

Details

The rich variety of transport in the London area, stretching out as far as the one time limit of London Transport's green bus operation, is reflected in this colour album from Martin Jenkins and Charles Roberts. Both authors have long-standing connections with the Capital and, using mainly previously unpublished colour views from the period 1948-1969, have assembled a remarkable array of views covering all modes of transport. The reader is taken on a fascinating journey of discovery, not knowing what will be around the next corner encountering buses, trams and trolleybuses; main line steam, diesel and electric; London Transport electric and steam as well as little known industrial railways; activities on the Thames, in docks and on canals; liners, ferries and pleasure steamers; plus aviation and even a coal merchant's horse drawn cart. This book is a tribute to those photographers who had the foresight to record scenes before they were swept away in the name of progress.
