Last Stop - Routemaster

Details

Designed in 1954 by the London Transport Engineering Manager, Colin Curtis, and introduced in 1956, the Routemaster was a fixture of the capital's streets for half a century before its withdrawal from regular service at the end of 2005. This book celebrates the role the bus played in London life. They pay tribute to the bus' warm, weighty yet elegant design features, the spontaneous social interactions catalysed by its trusty conductors and the ever-changing conversation between inside and outside space allowed by its open back. It's in these fluid, organic elements - all absent from the buses that have replaced it - that Obergfell finds the Routemaster's soul.
