Warning : this is all old, old stuff. If you appreciate the history of a bus company established in 1919 and which operated for some 60 years then continue.

All the black and white photos on McVicar's come from the Ron Drummond collection, and thank you Ron for sharing. The colour photos are mine.

Here's the link to an earlier McVicar's post for more photo's:

These are just amazing photographs. :shock:
Would that Gilford be an ex DRT&T bus? It also looks a bit like a White 54A!
That m/o.516 plate has also had a long history.
I just love the plate (m/o.16) that's on the Fageol!
Thanks for post them :!:

Another old McVicar's thread in which the photos have been reactivated.

I would love to include some of these old photos in the McVicar section of the photo gallery.
