Over 116 pages, the second volume of Britain's Buses focuses on the buses of 12 major UK cities outside London. These are Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol, Cardiff and Belfast.

In words and pictures - most of them in colour - this tells the stories of the often-distinctive buses operated in these cities from the 1950s to the present day. It charts how all of them were once municipally controlled, either by departments of the city corporations or - in the unique case of Bristol - ran in a partnership between the corporation and the then state-owned city bus company.

FEATURING:

Birmingham 
The city motto is Forward and its views on bus design were forward thinking

Manchester 
The Mancunian double-decker of 1968 set a standard that others tried to follow

Newcastle 
The city where the buses were yellow and the main roads were paved in red

Glasgow
 
A tram city that was a late starter in establishing a municipal bus service

Bristol 
Where company buses were managed jointly with the city corporation
