Birmingham Buses Route by Route

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.

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.

More Room on Top - The BMMO D9 and D10

More room on top

Author: Steve Richards
112 printed pages, Photos: 105 black and 110 colour

'The main subject of this book is the BMMO D9 bus. It was the only double-decker built completely by BMMO to enter production. This was at the time when the company was at its peak in passenger-carrying vehicle design. When writing the story, I wished to place the D9 in the context of other Midland Red double-decker buses. This is why I have included the Prologue reviewing the period 1905 to 1957, and a section is devoted to the BMMO D10.'

AEC Matador

AEC Matador

Author: Steve Richards
80 printed pages, Photos: 99 black and 68 colour

'Quintessentially British, the AEC Matador is one of the unsung automotive heroes of WW2. Whilst there have been several histories of the AEC company which briefly touch on the model, this is the first time that the Matador has been the star of the show. Steve Richards is to be congratulated for this fascinating insight into the development and career of what is possibly AEC’s finest product…'

Midland Red Motorway Coaches

Museum Guidebook

Author: Steve Richards
112 printed pages, 135 black and white 75 colour photos. 15 line illustrations

In this impressively-researched book, Steve Richards presents the story of the motorway coaches and the services they provided, but recounts first-hand experiences on the road, including the often apocryphal tales of excessive speed on the M1 Motorway in those days before the 70 mph limit.
