Served by Southdown


By Stewart J Brown and Chris Warren

In 2020, Capital Transport arranged the scanning of over 500 Southdown bus negatives of Peter Mitchell taken in the 1950s and 1960s. The best of these form the bulk of the images in this beautiful volume produced for Heathfield Publishing. Combined with some of Eric Surfleet’s stunning images from the collection of the Southdown Enthusiasts Club and detailed captions from Stewart J Brown and Chris Warren, this book evokes a time when Southdown was probably at its peak – both in terms of its buses and its services. The book follows a geographical pattern from west to east and shows the large and varied area that was Served by Southdown.
