London Bus Memories in Colour

Having spent his youth photographing steam locomotives Garry Yates switched, in1968, to taking black and white bus photographs on a 'box' Brownie 127 camera of the exposed radiator Birmingham City Transport buses which, at the time, were disappearing fast as new Fleetline buses took over. In 1973 he could finally afford a better camera and from that time onwards took colour slides and over the last 35 years has covered every bus fleet in the British Isles and Ireland including the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Many of the fleets and buildings have disappeared over the years, and today's four large bus companies have certainly made the hobby less interesting with a standardisation of vehicle types and liveries. In this book Garry has tried to give a flavour of London's buses in the 1970s showing the variation of vehicle types in an era when many famous LT buses like the RT and RF came to an end in favour of one man operated buses like the Fleetline (DMS), Leyland Titan (T), and Metrobus (M).
