The company was founded by Ralph Bullock initially as a haulage firm in 1928, with milk deliveries being the early focus. At the weekend, the trucks turned into cloth-top charabancs for trips to the seaside. By the mid-1930s, the fleet included trucks and proper coaches, but the trucks were nationalised under the Transport Act 1947 during Attlee's Labour government, leaving only the coaches in the business. Ralph was fond of Foden coaches, and the majority of the fleet throughout the 1940s to 1960s were Fodens, of which two still survive to this day, the oldest from 1949 is still roadworthy, and is currently on loan to the Museum of Transport in Manchester.

Famous quotes containing the words early days, days and/or early:
“I taught school in the early days of my manhood and I think I know something about mothers. There is a thread of aspiration that runs strong in them. It is the fiber that has formed the most unselfish creatures who inhabit this earth. They want three things only; for their children to be fed, to be healthy, and to make the most of themselves.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
“I doubt if men ever made a trade of heroism. In the days of Achilles, even, they delighted in big barns, and perchance in pressed hay, and he who possessed the most valuable team was the best fellow.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“It is not too much to say that next after the passion to learn there is no quality so indispensable to the successful prosecution of science as imagination. Find me a people whose early medicine is not mixed up with magic and incantations, and I will find you a people devoid of all scientific ability.”
—Charles Sanders Peirce (18391914)
