London Transport 1949-74

RRP: £14.99

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.

Containing some 120 colour photographs, including rare images from the post-war period, and detailed captions, this album shows  the transition  from  pre-war standards, which initially continued after the Second World War, to the  modernisation that was essential to encourage continued use of London's transport systems by the public In the face of increasing car ownership.

Rekindling memories of the post-war period, 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.
