City to Suburb by Greg Travers

A rare example of this standard work on the vehicles and operations of Sydney's Government buses from 1932 to 1982 when the book was published to mark 50 years of NSW DRTT and DGT buses. Many maps diagrams and tables, especially of fleet lists, makes and dates in service, valuable to restorers.

This copy is in fair condition.  Contents undamaged  in any way

The dust cover has obvious signs of wear, the book itself is  good.
