The aim of this series is to appeal to readers of all ages, perhaps for different reasons... In this volume: We travel back to the year 1967. The end of steam on the Southern Region of British Rail. Sandie Shaw won the Eurovision Song Contest Jeremy Thorpe became leader of the Liberal Party. First UK colour TV broadcast began .RMS Queen Mary made her final transatlantic voyage. For the younger reader there are wonderful pictures of buses and coaches that they will never have seen. There will, for example, be half-cab single and double deckers the like of which are no longerin production. Some will be recognised from models and books, while others will be seen for the first time. For the older reader the books are designed to build into a collection placing the road transport in the context of key events thus providing an historical perspective of travel in times past. For those old enough to remember the years depicted, the series will, we hope, provide reminders for many of school days, time perhaps spent bus-spotting, depot visiting and generally visiting interesting locations! The books also make ideal theme gifts for the year of birth, marriage, retirement, starting work and other such events in life.
