The third of Hugh Taylor’s planned series of four books about London Transport’s 21 trolleybus depots provides over 250 black and white and 31 colour views in the depots or of the routes worked from four in the north: Stonebridge Park, Colindale, Finchley and Wood Green, complete with plan drawings of the layouts of all four.

As with the earlier volumes (Reviews, January 2018 and January 2019), there are details of when trolleybuses operated there, the types allocated and routes served. Wood Green closed in November 1961, the other three in January 1962. They reached other parts of London including Clapham Junction, Hammersmith and Acton.
