Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent overview of Southern Vectis, he company that owns and runs the IOW Buses. The author
opens the book with a brief history of individuals and the independent companies that ran buses and coaches on the island until the formation of Southern Vectis in 1929. It also brought back many happy memories of the buses and coaches that we rode on when visiting the island in the 1950's and 60's.

I thoroughly recommend to anyone who has an interest in both the island and buse!
