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.

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

About Jim Blake

Jim Blake was born in December 1947, just before the nationalisation of Britain's railways and London Transport, born and brought up in Canonbury in today's London Borough of Islington, he lived in the heart of London's legendary trolleybus system and also had North London's last trams, which served Kingsway Subway, on his doorstep.

This ensured a life long interest in buses, trolleybuses and trams, as well as railways, which most young lads had in the 1950s.

He begun transport photography in 1961, subsequently taking over 100,000 still pictures and went on to cover transport subjects with his cine camera in colour during the late 1960s and 1970s.

Since 1977 he has had a considerable number of books published covering bus and railway subjects across the country, looking at a wide number of fleets and operations.

Much of his work encapsulates a time of great change in the world of transport, with many types of vehicle and chassis types diminishing owing to standardisation.

The operators were in themselves also changing and his books reflect the changing transport scene of this interesting period, showing the social changes as well as that of the corporate.
