The Pride of Bucks- A History of the Amersham & District Mot


In 1919 a group of local entrepreneurs founded the first motor bus services in and around Amersham and Chesham. The impact they had on the community was profound and in fourteen years the local bus moved from novelty to normality. Research has been undertaken extracting the company's history from their accounts, their preserved minute books, contemporary letters to the press, and material handed down by people who worked for the Company. Local social history reinforce stories, both sentimental and sad, adding to this fascinating account. Delve into the struggles of a fledgling business and discover how it finally grew to become one of the largest independent operators on the outskirts of London.
