    The prevalence of low railway bridges around the country made a double-decker bus with a lower profile desirable to operators, and the Bristol Lodekka was designed to meet the demand in 1949. In the 1950s and 1960s all the main bus chassis manufacturers launched competitors, none of which matched the Lowdekka's success. This collection of colour photographs surveys the many alternative low-height buses, including the AEC Bridgemaster, Albion Lowlander and Dennis Loline.
