4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Wayne Redhart TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Aug 2007
Harvey is an excellent photographer and this book offers some vivid scenes from his daily travels on Birmingham's 11C route. Using wide-angle exposures, he manages to reflect the full spectrum of Birmingham's streets. Capturing over five hundred kebab houses and eighty massage parlours for posterity is no minor achievement. One or two of the shots are marginally obscured by the inevitable chewing gum and graffiti on the bus windows, but the quality is largely very fine. The spirit of Birmingham is perhaps best encapsulated by the photograph on page nine- in which a young student is seen urinating against a parked car whilst gorging herself on curry and chips.

I didn't know what to expect from this book as I had only been made aware recently about the Birmingham Bus Route No. 11 but the book has turned out to be worth every penny, is packed with interesting information and has provided me with what I need to know when I travel the No.11 route hopefully in the not too distant future. The book is packed with some great photos from Birmingham in the past and on studying them they bring an excitement and fascination to me as to how the past looked.

David Harvey, Margaret Hanson and peter Drake have written a wonderful " Tour Guide" of Birmingham's famous Outer Circle Route of the number 11 bus service. The book is very well illustrated throughout and its probably worth taking this book along should you want to do the whole Circular Route! The book is going in an Anti-Clockwise direction starting from Lordswood Road, Bearwood. the only slight gripe is on Page 27 which has an birds eye view of Selly Oak Hospital--in the book the image is reversed, the rest of the book is good and i would really recommend this not just for the Nostalgist, but as a handy guide to this iconic bus route, it might be of interest to also purchase a copy of The inner circle: Birmingham's number 8 bus route a perfect stablemate to this volume.
