About the author:
R.C. Riley (1921-2006) was one of the country's most foremost railway photographers, whose vast and carefully composed output over several decades has graced a score of books and magazines.
As well as cataloguing Britain's vanishing steam operations and their replacement by diesel and electric locomotives, Dick also turned his camera on his local buses. Living for many years in Beckenham, which is shared between Greater London and west Kent, he recorded meticulously the passage of time that saw the time-honoured London Transport red buses give way to those of independent companies.
