The 1930s saw perhaps the most change in the British passenger transport industry until the rear-engined, driver-only-operated revolution of more recent times. There were solid-tyred vehicles without roofs in front-line service. G J Rackham, had introduced the revolutionary Leyland Titan and Tiger ranges, and then the AEC Regal, Regent and Renown. This was the era of enormous expansion in express services between the nation's towns and cities, and in the luxury touring and private hire market. GHF Atkins, was on hand throughout the thirties, recording a superlative series of portraits of the best and most interesting of the buses and coaches to be seen and he took the bulk of approximately 100 pictures in this book. Others have come from the renowned Senior Transport Archive and other sources.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
