Not Yet Published
Walter Alexander was for many years the largest bus company in Scotland. The operations were divided into three areas - Southern, Fife and Northern. The Southern area was substantially that developed by the Alexander company. In Fife it was the General Motor Carrying Company Limited of Kirkcaldy and Wemyss & District Tramways Company Limited. In Kirkcaldy Corporation tramcars were replaced by Alexander buses on May 15, 1931. In Dunfermline Simpson's & Forrester's Limited was absorbed on April 1, 1938. The Northern area came into Alexander hands from 1930 with the takeover of services operated by the Scottish General Omnibus Group, Northern General Services of Arbroath and the bus services of the London & North Eastern Railway Company in Aberdeen. In 1949 Scottish Motor Traction services around Dundee were transferred to Alexander, and in 1950 James Sutherland of Peterhead followed. This book covers all three areas with views taken in 1955 and 1956..
