The red double decker bus is one of the enduring images of London.

Although now increasingly replaced by modern bendy buses, the classic rear-entrance double-decker still appears on postcards, keyrings, t-shirts and other tourist souvenirs.

Successor to the horse-drawn London buses of the nineteenth century, the B-type double-decker first appeared in the Edwardian period, and was the first in a classic line of London motorbuses.

Take a trip back in time to explore the story of the London bus, from horse-drawn to bendy bus.

With special attention paid to the much-loved double-decker, the author discusses bus design, manufacture and operation, plus the work of drivers and conductors, making this the perfect celebration of the best-loved bus in the world.
