Just a quick headsup for the local history and transport enthusiasts out there who may be interested in the story of the iconic Harper Brothers bus company, whose green buses were a common sight around these parts up until the mid 1970s.
I’ve mentioned harpers many times, the younger young David Evans remembered journeys with them fondly, and transport experts like Tony Martin and Philip Burton have supplied much interesting material.
I therefore thought it would be important to share with readers the news that there is a new book out about the history of Harper Brothers, written by a true expert, and Philip Burton was kind enough to tell me all about it.
Harper Brothers And It’s History.
If anyone is interested in the history of Harpers, this is the book for you.
Written and published by Bryan Yates, This is the story of the company with some rare photos, unlike other Harper Bros. books on the market.
If interested, contact Bryan at 6 Seedy Mill Cottages, Hanch, Lichfield. WS13 8 HQ. or e mail him on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The price is £13 inclusive of postage.
Thanks to Philip for the headsup, and if you buy a copy and would like to send in a review, it would be most welcome – comment here of mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail do com. Thanks.
