This fascinating collection of over 200 archive photographs uses the popular bus route from the Maypole terminus, along the Alcester and Moseley Roads, to the centre of Birmingham, to show how the areas passed through - Kings Heath, Balsall Heath - have changed over the last century. This has been the busiest bus route in Birmingham for many years and has thousands of regular users. Buildings, shops and streets that have now disappeared are seen alongside changing fashions, modes of transport and ways of life in this in-depth study of the history of the area, which also includes the history of some of the buses and trams used on this route. With images from the author's own extensive collection, Maypole to the City is sure to delight all who know and love the region.
