British Buses and Coaches in the 1960s, is an overview of the bus and coach scene during a decade of great social and economic change in Britain's history.

This volume looks at the interesting and varied number of bus and coach operators that still existed, before and just after the formation of the National Bus Company in 1968.

Jim Blake has compiled an interesting collection of material from his extensive collection of negatives taken during that time, which give a flavour of how things were at that time of great change.

About The Author

Jim Blake was born at the end of 1947, and he soon developed a passionate interest in railways, buses and trolleybuses. In 1965, he bought a colour cine-camera, with which he captured what is now very rare footage of long-lost buses, trolleybuses and steam locomotives. These transport photographs have been published in various books and magazines. Jim also started the North London Transport Society and, in conjunction with the group, he has compiled and published a number of books on the subject since 1977, featuring many of the 100,000 or so transport photographs he has taken over the years.
