London Transport 1949-74
London Transport 1949 74 Transport Systems Series: Volume 2
PLEASE NOTE: This is a paperback reissue of the much-loved Twenty-Five Years of London Transport: 1949 74.
London Transport was formed in 1933 to bring together all the public transport operations (except national railways) that served the capital, the suburbs and the surrounding countryside. Previously, these had been in the hands of a myriad of operators, some more dependable than others. This book shows the transition from pre-war standards to the modernisation that was essential to encourage continued public use of London s transport systems. Containing some 120 colour photographs and detailed captions, this nostalgic colour portrait looks at London Transport s buses, trolleybuses, trams and underground trains (both surface and tube stock) operating between 1949 and 1974.
