About the Book
This is the second volume in my series covering Britain of photographs taken in the late'60s and early '70s.
The area covered in this book runs south east from London taking in Maidstone & District, East Kent, Eastbourne ,Brighton, Portsmouth & Southdown.
Mainly it is of the South Coast operators in the period before the all-enclosed buses
came along. Continuation via.Southampton to Bournemouth is in Vol.three.
Originally from Romford, Essex where I travelled all over GB photographing railways (from 1962) and buses(from 1967). I moved up to Scotland in 1973 where I continued to record but now mainly preserved transport. The occasional trip south to see my favourite Bluebell railway and others was enjoyed. My main occupation upon moving north was for some time chasing A4 No.60009 'Union of South Africa' on its many railtours. Visits were also made to the Settle & Carlisle and on many occasions to the West Highland line. Most books produced from Alloa but from Jul'13 moved to near Berwick-upon-Tweed only 1/2 mile into Scotland.
