LONDON BUS DIARY 1991/2
(and other books and videos)
Here's your chance to buy one of NINE copies I have of my great pictorial masterpiece, The London Bus Diary 1991/2, my review of the said years.
The year 1991 was a controversial and eventful year in the history of London's Buses. OK, you could say that about every year since 1987, with industrial relations, the politics of it and route tendering taking hold, but 1991 was arguably the year when the two-year-old London Buses subsidiaries really began to stand alone.
The subsidiaries did their own thing, ordered their own buses (as long as approval from 'on high' was granted) and standardisation disappeared, if it hadn't already.
See and read the reasons why London Forest didn't survive long enough to get bought by one of the big companies. See the route revision scheme that expanded the area of Wandsworth into Central London and beyond. . . and see the bus pensioned off to the London Transport Museum at the tender age of five!
The London Bus Diary 1991/2 originally retailed at £9.50, but it can be yours for just £6.00.
