Described by the author as ‘a delightful country bus operation’ Hardwick’s life as a bus operator started in 1922. When David Hardwick retired in 1922 he sold the business to a coal merchant from Hull. A few years later they, in turn, sold it on to Wallace Arnold who added the stage operations to their existing excursion and tours business in Scarborough. Ownership of Hardwick’s continued with Wallace Arnold until 1987 when they sold out to East Yorkshire and it was absorbed by them. Using family photographs complemented with key images from other enthusiasts the Yorkshire-born author has put together an illustrated history of this interesting bus operator.
The book is illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs of the vehicles themselves. There is a price sticker on the rear side cover
