Hardwick's Services Limited, Scarborough: A Wallace Arnold Country Bus Company from 1952 to 1987 (Stenlake)

Back Order

Hardwick’s of Scarborough began life as a rural bus operator in 1922 and has been described by author, Stuart Emmett as `a delightful country bus operation’.

When David Hardwick retired in 1947, the family-run business was sold to a Hull coal merchant, who in turn sold it on a few years later to Wallace Arnold – the established tour and excursion operator. Wallace Arnold added the stage carriage operations to its existing business in Scarborough and retained ownership of Hardwick’s until 1987 when they sold out to East Yorkshire.

Hardwick’s Services Limited, Scarborough – A Wallace Arnold Country Bus Company from 1952 to 1987 contains a collection of colour and black & white photographs, forming an illustrated history of the company from the early 1950s. The author has used his family collection and key images from other enthusiasts to create an interesting and informative record. 48 pages.
