This remarkable book takes the reader on a nostalgic transport journey into streets throughout the British Isles some of which have hardly changed, except for the vehicles displayed, whilst others have been transformed or have, in some cases, altered virtually beyond all recognition. Hours of fascinating research using Google Street View has enabled the authors to indicate how their selected street scenes have changed and also how readers can explore these changes for themselves by accessing Google Street View.

The authors have managed to bring together some truly outstanding and often stunning images from a period when color coverage of transport subjects was in its infancy. As a result, the book includes many previously unpublished views taken between 1950 and 1975 the majority from collections held by Online Transport Archive, of which charity both authors are trustees. The richly varied street scenes depict not only buses, trams and trolleybuses but also people as well as railway locomotives, cars, lorries, vans, cinemas, churches, retail outlets and public houses. An absolute feast for the eye. Rich in variety and with a wealth of detailed captions.
