Synopsis

Author Stan Yorke takes a look at the story of public transport, explaining how services developed into the system we are familiar with today. From horse-drawn coaches and trams to trains and buses, with stops on the way to take in the genius of Victorian invention, the chicanery of politicians, and the turbulence of social upheaval. The book is packed with color photographs showing public transport vehicles of every kind. There is also a list of places to visit where superb, restored examples can be seen today.
