We’ve talked about Harpers busses here on the blog a lot over the years – many of us have fond memories of catching these distinctive green double deckers and coaches to popular local destinations, like Birmingham, Lichfield and Cannock.
I think most of us smile at the memory of the Clippies, hopping on via the rear door, and the thick fug of smoke on the top deck.
Well, Philip Burton has recently been in touch and asked me to see if any readers can help with the following call for historical material, ephemera and memories of this once-iconic local bus company, for his friend Brian.
I have a friend, Brian Yates who is writing a book which is almost complete on the history of Harper Brothers, but he is looking for any information, memories or photos to help him tell the story.
Brian would like to publish it this year if he can – would it be at all possible to help him out and put his request out on your blog?
Any memories, photos and stories, anything that could help me to tell the story.
