Great photos, from a time when there were many small coach companies in the area. Wilf Ward had his depot on the river side down Thornaby pace before it was redeveloped. Roystons, Compass coaches, Ves Maddren from Billingham, and Beggs to name just a few. Even before these, there was Dave Rennisons coaches up by Stockton station.
