East Yorkshire Motor Services

Availability: Out of stock

The legendary East Yorkshire Motor Services has been providing bus services in East Yorkshire since 1926. With buses painted in a distinctive livery of indigo blue and primrose yellow the company became famous for its ‘Beverley Bar’-shaped double-deckers operated through Beverley’s North Bar between 1933 and 1970. With distinctive destination indicators and the Willebrew ticket system, here was a company with its own very idiosyncratic way of doing things.

Author Bernard Warr has been an enthusiastic observer of the company since the mid-1950s and in that time has managed to take many photographs that will bring back memories of how the company fared in the boom days of bus travel in the 1950s and 1960s. Most of these images have never been published before and will provide a fresh insight into the company.

The Beverley Bar roofs and the distinctive livery may have gone but EYMS seems proud of its history and is embracing the future with confidence.
