Sinopse

The West Bromwich Corporation Act of 1913 gave the Corporation the powers to operate motor buses, the first of which were four Albion single-deckers that lasted for less than seven weeks before the chassis were commandeered for war work in October 1914. After the First World War, bus services began to expand across Britain and West Bromwich was no exception; by the early 1930s there were routes to Great Bridge, Stone Cross, Hamstead, Streetly, Tantany, Black Lake, Hill Top, Greets Green and Smethwick and the Corporation's first joint route, to Walsall, had also been developed. The West Bromwich fleet was largely made up of single-deck vehicles until the mid-1930s, and after the Corporation's tramways were replaced on 1 January 1939, the Daimler COG6 became the standard double-decker, replaced during the Second World War by the Daimler CWA6 and nineteen Austerity buses. After the war, Daimler CVG6s and CVG6/30s became the vehicle of choice, in a beautiful blue livery that lit up West Bromwich. In this book, David Harvey looks at the West Bromwich Corporation bus fleet from 1914 to its last purchases of Daimler Fleetlines in 1969 just prior to being swallowed up by West Midlands PTE.
