This is an illustrated history of the Crosville bus company in Liverpool. The company started bus operations in the years leading up to the First World War and by the late 1920s was a leading operator across the Wirral and into Lancashire, Cheshire and North Wales. It started operations in Liverpool in 1922 and its buses were an everyday sight in Merseyside until its Liverpool depot closed in early 1987 following deregulation of the bus industry in October 1986. In this book author Richard Lloyd Jones covers the history of over sixty years of Crosville in Liverpool as well as the story of its demise, drawing on photographs from the time of the company, its depot and vehicles as well as personal accounts from actual staff, both management and unions and their families.
