Andrew Meads offers a pictorial history of the Grey-Green company, who operated vehicles from the First World War until 2000. The company was formed by the Ewer family at the end of the 19th century in the east-end of London as a haulage carrier. Coaches were introduced after WWI and the company steadily grew in size over the following years. Many smaller coach companies were acquired, including the well-known Orange Luxury Coaches. In 1980, Sunderland motor dealer Cowie acquired the Ewer Group and, during the mid-1980s, bid to run many of London's bus routes. The major success of bus operation led the company to purchase some of the country's major bus firms. A decision was made in the late 1990s to rebrand all companies in the Cowie Group to Arriva and so the Grey-Green name was lost. Utilising a range of rare colour and monochrome images, as well as period leaflets and timetables, this is an essential document of one of Britiain's most iconic bus and coach operators.
