An advertising flyer, with a hand-tinted image of an electrobus, that was sent to dozens of local councils in the summer of 1908.

The full story of the electrobus swindle has never been told before. Much of the story has had to be pieced together like a jigsaw from different sources, from company records to minutes of council committees and reports of legal cases. This page is a guide to the sources that provide the evidence of the electrobus swindle.

You will find on the drop down menu a bibliography (a fuller version than appears in the book), together with notes on some of the more important primary sources and the minefield that was the Edwardian press.
