The Brown Bus - Preliminary article

A Moore Ltd operated a well-known Windsor bus service known as the 'brown bus' back in the 1950s and 60s. Many Windsorians would have been familiar with the coaches pictured below which over the years were regularly seen operating the services between Dedworth and Windsor River St Car Park. Lots of school children would also have been taken for their swimming lessons in these coaches too. Also known as the Imperial bus service, it ceased around 1977?? From memory, the company was based in Hatch Lane, behind the Carpenters Arms.
