|This is the first book in a planned series
covering the author's personal photographs of the DMS class of Daimler
Fleetlines new to London Transport and later exported to Hong Kong for
Over 300 such buses were purchased by all
of Hong Kong's major bus operators, namely China Motor Bus (206), Kowloon
Motor Bus (100), Argos (30) and Citybus (11).
The author has made numerous visits to Hong
Kong, and the photographs in this book, of which there are almost 300 in
full colour, cover visits made in 1984, 1985, 1986 and 1990, whilst the
final section covers those taken in Guangzhou during a visit in 1992.
The photos are arranged in date order, and
each has a caption in both English and Chinese. Many of the photographs
highlight specific variations in the vehicles.
The Index at the back of the book lists all
the photos by London Transport Fleet Number followed by the date on which
the bus was photographed.
Typical pages from the book are shown below.
