London Buses a Living Heritage : Fifty Years of the London Bus Museum Paperback
by Graham Smith
On 4th October 1966 eleven young bus enthusiasts met in Central London to look for ways to develop their shared interest in preserving some old London buses.
They couldn't know then that their meeting was the beginning of a volunteer-run organisation which would grow to a membership of around 800 owning a world-class museum.
This is the London Bus Museum at Brooklands in Surrey with its unique collection of buses spanning more than a century.
This book describes the first 50 years of the London Bus Preservation Group/Trust, including the many years at its Cobham Bus Museum premises, and also shows how the London bus developed from the horse-bus through many stages to today's latest all-electric double-deckers.
It's a fascinating journey through time as, indeed, are many of the stories about the vehicles in the London Bus Museum's collection.
