We are pleased to confirm that orders for our titles are being honoured during the present emergency.  Nearly all titles remain in stock at present with some however in limited supply. **    We need to advise following receipt of orders today that we now have ten copies left of the latest title 'Municipal Transport 1960s'.

 

Books are being posted within 48 hours of orders being received - second class mail. 

 

The commemorative book on Blackpool's Bus Centenary originally planned for publication towards the end of 2020 has had to be delayed and we are hoping it will be ready for Easter 2021.   More details will be confirmed over the course of the year.

 

A further title in the 'Municipal Transport' series is being assembled for 2021.   This will deal with Blackpool's transport (buses and trams) during the 1920s.   Again we appeal for family 'snaps' or images from private collections not previously published of Blackpool Corporation vehicles and employees during this decade.  

 

We wish to thank subscribers ordering online through this website and will endeavour to respond to individual enquiries where posted.
