British Buses and Coaches in the 1960s is an overview of the bus and coach scene during a decade of great social and economic change in Britain's history.

This volume looks at the interesting and varied number of bus and coach operators that still existed before and just after the formation of the National Bus Company in 1968.

Jim Blake has compiled an interesting collection of material from his extensive collection of negatives taken during that period, which give a flavour of how things were at that time of great change.

One of several volumes by the author in this series, this is the book that bus enthusiasts will want. The vast number of pictures of differing types of vehicles, some seldom seen, in varied locations has appeal. The captions are succinct and informative.

Society of Automotive Historians

A very nostalgic book, and definitely gives a good view of the time.

About Jim Blake

JIM BLAKE was born in December 1947 and brought up in Islington, North London. As did most young lads then, he soon developed an interest in railways, but also London's trams, trolleybuses and buses since North London's last two tram routes ran near his home, at the heart of London Transport's trolleybus system. His interest developed into transport photography in 1961 and he took over 100,000 photos before retiring his cameras in 2015. He still lives in North London today.
