Birmingham Buses Route by Route
By Malcolm Keeley
Plenty of books have been written about buses but not many are based around the service network. Malcolm's latest book offers us a chance to remember the buses on the streets and roads in and around Birmingham carrying the city's workers and shoppers from 1925 to 1975.
Over 350 colour and black and white illustrations are included.
