Alexanders were Scotland's biggest bus & coach operator for much of the 20th Century.

This book outlines the Alexander story in its early years, then examines the effect of the split in the company in 1961, and the following years up to privatisation.

It also includes a postscript, looking briefly at the vehicles inherited by Stagecoach and First, and at the former Alexander operations as they are today.

Alongside various colour photographs, the book will also features tables showing a summary by vehicle type of the three fleets in 1961, 1985 and at the time of privatisation and a map copied from a 1960's timetable to illustrate the extent of the three companies' operating areas.

"I must say this book is a welcome addition and my immediate impression was a book I liked with chapters covering the pre-62 Alexander and the subsequent decades of stability and change. Most of the pictures are in colour by the author but there are images from other contributors which well reflect the relative stability of the 60/70's in contrast with the endless change which came with deregulation and privatisation in the 1980s. My favourite image appears on p6 with vehicles from Lawson. Alexander and SMT amidst a setting of tenements in Parliamentary Road in Glasgow - a scene now totally gone."

"This is a great book to have in your collection. I recommend this book to others it is a very good book to own and it is very well put together."- Amazon Reviews.
