The last three decades of the twentieth century saw dramatic changes in the bus industry with deregulation of bus services nationally in October 1986 in the provincial areas. Visually London seemed to stay the same with the buses still operating in the customary red liveries which all cherished from childhood. This book sets out to show how the vehicles moved forward from the traditional layout of rear platform and open half cab to the introduction of one man buses with their front entrances. The effects of deregulation are shown with dynamic color schemes especially with the Bexleybus blue and cream color scheme. With the passing of years we progress to the now familiar single deck buses, and also cover various other transport experiments.

Continuing with photographs from Jim Blake's extensive archives, this book examines the second half of the 1970s, when both London Transport and London Country were still struggling to keep services going. This resulted both from being plagued by a shortage of spare parts for their vehicles, and having a number of vehicle types which were unreliable the MB, SM and DMS classes. In 1975, both operators had to hire buses from other companies, so desperate were they. Many came from the seaside towns of Southend, Bournemouth and Eastbourne. This continued until the spares shortage began to abate later in the decade, particularly with London Country. As the decade progressed, the two fleets began to lose their 'ancestral' vehicle types. London Country rapidly became 'just another National Bus Company fleet', buying Leyland Atlanteans and Nationals common to most others throughout the country. Having virtually abandoned the awful MB and SM-types, London Transport had to suffer buying the equally awful DMSs well into 1978, but had already ordered replacements for them by that point the M class Metrobuses and T class Titans both of which would finally prove successful. However, plans to convert trunk routes serving Central London to one-person operation were largely abandoned.

The 1970s were among London Transports most troubled years. Prohibited from designing its own buses for the gruelling conditions of the capital, LT was compelled to embark upon mass orders for the broadly standard products of national manufacturers, which for one reason or another proved to be disastrous failures in the capital and were disposed of prematurely at a great loss. Despite a continuing spares shortage combined with industrial action, the old organisation kept going somehow, with the venerable RT and Routemaster families still at the forefront of operations.At the same time, the green buses of the Country Area were taken over by the National Bus Company as London Country Bus Services. Little by little, and not without problems of their own, the mostly elderly but standard inherited buses gave way to a variety of diverted orders, some successful others far from so, until by the end of the decade we could see a mostly NBC-standard fleet of one-man-operated buses in corporate leaf green.

FROM IRON AGE CEMETERIES TO VIKING RAIDS, THE FIRE OF 1666 TO THE BANK OF ENGLAND, GEORGIAN BROTHELS TO VICTORIAN SEWERS, DICKENS TO THE HEYDAY OF FLEET STREET, THE SUFFRAGETTES TO THE OLYMPICS OF 2012, LONDONOFFERS A UNIQUE PANORAMA OF HISTORY OF THE CITY. A NEW, VIVIDLY ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST EXCITING CITIES. From 450,000BC and the earliest human remains in the Thames valley to the 2012 Olympics, and following the impacts of invasions, revolts and epidemics, this book shows how, against all the odds, an insignificant river crossing became the British capital. In fifteen thematic chapters exploring the lives and experiences of Londoners over the last three thousand years, Londonexplores everything form costermongers to the Krays, medieval Jewish ghettos to Georgian brothels, and the building of the Underground to the destruction of the Blitz. Images, objects and expert text from the Museum of London, together with maps both old and new, shine a fresh light on all aspects of the city's constantly changing story. Pubs and sports grounds, immigrant communities, health and popular religion, shopping, crime and gentrification are examined, along with urban development, planning from Christopher Wren to Patrick Abercrombie, art, politics and major events in London's history. Special 'Survivals' spreads seven show where buildings from London's past can still be seen today. Contemporary cartoons and paintings, startling artefacts and the museum's own reconstructions of ancient markets, temples and bathhouses, make the daily lives of Londoners and the city's chequered history come alive in this book as never before.
