Are You in the Picture?

Are you in the picture? We think this is a school outing in Edwinstowe. Are you one of the children in the picture, or do you remember Morley's buses?

If so, please leave your information via the 'Comment' link at the bottom of this page.  Thank you.

On the SCT'61 website there is a photo from 1963 of an AEC Monocoach (registration SAL 55) which says it was bought new by Morleys of Edwinstowe. With my comment above that puts the operational dates for the company as stretching from at least 1963 to 1975-76. Does anyone else know any more about Morleys?

My father, but more likely my grandfather may be in the picture with the Morley buses. The older man on the right side near the bus looks like my Grandfather, Mr. Dixon. My grandparents may also be in the Newark's Northgate Station picture. They were headmaster, and headmistress of Edwinstowe schools. I'd love to see enlarged versions of the photographs.

Re the Morley`s - in the 1911 census, Percy Williams Morley, born 1868 in Edwinstowe was a Cab Proprietor living at View House ,presumably the house standing at right angle to the garage on  High St. PWs son James Henry Percival,born1899 and familiarly known as Perc and/or Val later ran the business first with Taxis, then later just after the war with Bedford OB coaches - I think he had 2 - He ran a service taking men to Thoresby colliery for the 3 shifts resulting in the demise of many cyclists - my father included. I think he kept the OBs into the mid1950s
