5.0 out of 5 stars SPOTTERS NOSTALGIA !, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London Transport from the 1930s to the 1950s (Hardcover)
A fascinating look at London Transport and its various fleets of buses, trams and trains and very much aimed at enthusiasts. It was rather like a replay of my own childhood from the period of the 2nd WW through to the end of the 1950s.. The big difference being that I was a North Londoner and my favourite routes, garages and stations were north of the river. Michael Baker s knowledge is amazing and far in excess of my own. In places his book is historically as interesting as a good novel which provides a generally very well thought out contrast and balance with the more detailed informative parts. I can unreservedly recommend this book to all those who were keen on all things LT in their childhood and look back to those days of "spotting " with fondness.

This review is from: London Transport from the 1930s to the 1950s (Hardcover)
This account of London Transport during three crucial decades of its existence is a fascinating book. Not only are the various vehicles and trains described but a lot of everyday, background information and comments are included. A very well presented slice of nostalgia.

This review is from: London Transport from the 1930s to the 1950s (Hardcover)
For someone like me who collected bus numbers in London in the 50s this is a wonderful read with evocative photos, many taken by the author. I found it entertaining and informative. Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent book - I'm halfway through and have found no real errors (so far!) but then, with this writer I don't expect to find any either!
