York Independents Book Britain's Buses Series: Volume 2
This book, containing over 150 photographs, many in colour, tells the story of stage bus companies, including Everingham Brothers, Baileys, J. Broadbent, Milburn and Gorwood Brothers, who operated from the east of York. All of these companies had similarities and, like many rural bus services, they started by running a service to their nearest market town. This was often done to get a second income to supplement the operator s main living, which usually came from farming and agriculture. As time progressed, most of the companies grew their bus network and also offered excursions and private hires. However, changes to the way of life in the 1950s and 1960s, including the growth of television and car ownership, led to the demise of many true country bus operators, including all of those featured in this book.
