When Americans think of buses, the name Greyhound inevitably comes to mind. Avid bus enthusiast and historian, William A. Luke compiles ten dozen fascinating photographs depicting the great variety of buses the company has used from its beginning in 1914 to present. In addition to standard models from the Big Gray Dog's fleet there are examples of experimental models, unusual types operated at the 1933 Chicago World's Fair and the 1940 New York World's Fair, and timetables and sales brochures.
