4.0 out of 5 stars One for the enthusiast, 29 Jan 2006
This review is from: The Bus We Loved: London's Affair with the Routemaster (Hardcover)
This was a very enjoyable read. At first I thought I was going to be disappointed with the lack of pictures and photos. There is not a lot of detail of route specifics but that is not what this book is about.
It is an in-depth look at how the Routemaster came about and provides a very good history of London's bus history which led to the Routemaster's birth and existance.
As one who grew up bus spotting in the 50's I can vouch for the accuracy of the details in the book and it bought back many happy memories.
The only fact I found missing was how London Transport developed the 8 foot wide RTW so that they could see if the soon-to-be Routemaster would be able to safely drive on London's narrow streets. All buses before had been seven and a half feet wide.
