This book provides a full history of the bus body building activities undertaken by the Bristol Tramways & Carriage Company between 1907 and 1956 at the Body Building Works in their Brislington depot. BBW bodies were supplied to many different operating companies and were therefore seen all over the British Isles. The book contains 16 chapters, each with a wide variety of photographs. The total of 308 photos include a large proportion of official company shots as well as many others not seen before. Unusually there is a very even coverage of all periods of production, with particular strength in the first 30 years.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, but the spine is tight and intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is some light bubbling to the inside pages.
