Instantly recognisable, endlessly imitated, beloved by tourists and Londoners alike: London's buses are iconic. Not merely a vital component of the city's infrastructure, they are equally embedded in its culture; written about, sung about, joked about, filmed, painted (and painted on), advertised, and celebrated in myriad ways. And for the many thousands of people who have depended on them for a livelihood - drivers, conductors, cleaners, mechanics, inspectors - they have created their own world, complete with a distinct language, with uniforms, with places, and with men and women of every imaginable culture and ethnicity. This collection celebrates the unique relationship that Londoners have with their most important mode of transport, telling you all the things you never knew about London's lifeblood and how it's kept the capital moving for more than a century.
