Vintage Buses in Glorious Devon: A Journey in Colour - Roger Malone

There is a head-turning charm about heritage transport. And where better to showcase such preserved delights than glorious Devon? This book is an affectionate endeavour to celebrate a bygone era. One kept vividly alive, and on the road, by the dedication of owner enthusiasts. Here buses visit the county's spectacular coastlines, climb towards rugged Dartmoor tors, and pass through picturesque towns and rolling countryside. In more than 200 images the author, Roger Malone, has set out to portray the vehicles in surroundings that are sympathetic to the subject, and which often seem timeless. As well as depicting a fascinating array of heritage public transport, his photographs convey much of the county's superlative scenery - a delight enjoyed by both Devonians and visitors alike. And so we roam from a magical, rain-shiny running night at Exeter to high summer on Plymouth Hoe; from a climb over the high moors to Princetown, to the genteel Regency resort of Sidmouth. Throughout the book old companies will revive old memories. Royal Blue, Grey Cars, Devon General, Western National - all seen across diverse locations from North Devon to the south coast as we journey on this colourful trip into the past.
