Country Buses - Volume Three 1960-1969



By Laurie Akehurst

This book completes Laurie Akehurst's record of London Transport country buses by taking the story up to the end of London Transport control of the services. The 1960s was a period of decline, as usage of buses continued to be affected by increasing car ownership. In the second half of the decade, a big move towards one-man operation of larger vehicles began and the vehicles used initially were of a design that just accelerated the move away from bus use. The story is well illustrated in photographs and ephemera, bringing to life again a ten-year period of significant change.
