As Birmingham grew in the late Victorian and Edwardian period, the city slowly consumed farmland and small villages on its outskirts. With this growth came a need to transport workers to their jobs or for leisure. Firstly trams, and then buses would transport the worker or day tripper around the city. In Birmingham by the Bus David Harvey takes us on a nostalgic journey back in time, when it was possible to travel the city's roads without the congestion we see today. From open top trams and buses to roads any resident will be familiar with, David Harvey presents a collection of 200 fascinating images of the city, its workers and the public transport from the city centre to the Lickey Hills.
