This is the fourth and final volume in Caroline Cleaveleys affectionate and comprehensive series looking at what began as the United Counties Omnibus Co Ltd 100 years ago on the eve of the First World War, and featuring reminiscences of staff, friends and families past and present.
The first half of the book provides a concise history of the company by Roger Warwick and Steve Loveridge. The second section contains further memories following on from those in Parts 1 to 3 of the series, then we are treated to a hugely varied selection of photographs from the archive of Derek Watson, from Bedford.
To finish in grand style, for the first time Part 4 contains many colour photographs, and is thus a fitting conclusion to this popular series.

Northampton-born Caroline Cleaveley has been fascinated by United Counties and its family of employees since childhood, when as a youngster she unofficially assisted friendly conductors and paid regular visits to the works. She now lives in Gloucestershire.
