The clang of the trolleybus bell, the sudden, piercing blast of the guards whistle, the whirr of the Clippies ticket machine and the familiar, friendly call of Fares, Please are all sounds that bring back memories of travelling by publicMoreThe clang of the trolleybus bell, the sudden, piercing blast of the guards whistle, the whirr of the Clippies ticket machine and the familiar, friendly call of Fares, Please are all sounds that bring back memories of travelling by public transport in years gone by. This lively history takes the reader on a journey of discovery.

Starting with horse drawn open buses and cabs, through the age of steam trains, trams and trolley buses, to the much-loved red Routemaster buses. There are stops on the way to take in the genius of Victorian invention, the chicanery of politicians, and the turbulence of social upheaval. Stan Yorkes book is filled with colour photographs that show a glorious cavalcade of public transport vehicles of every kind. There is also a list of places to visit where many examples, lovingly restored to working order by the hard work and enthusiasm of dedicated devotees, can be seen today.
