The Colours of the West Midlands

Colours of the West Midlands

Author Malcolm Keeley
128 Pages Hardback

It deals with a period now long gone but, as you turn the pages, the intervening years melt away and you start to smell the smells and hear the sounds around you. Whether by design or accident, the photographers here have all caught a slice of life where the compositions tell a much bigger story that puts the bus into the context of place and time.

Pure pleasure, a good read and a nostalgic journey.

Ray Stenning, Editor, Classic Bus
