Torry bus
This image shows a Torry bus. The driver and young conductor stand outside the vehicle, which has Rover written on its side.

Silver City Vault user Dr Mike Mitchell has provided us with excellent, more detailed information:

"Rover Bus Service started operations on 22 August 1927 between Kings Gate and Torry, extending to Bay of Nigg at the weekend. The company was owned by Scott and Mearns, and by George Scott alone from 1928. It was the only independent bus company in Aberdeen to survive competition with Aberdeen Corporation Tramways, and was bought out by the Corporation in November 1935. This bus is a 19 seat Chevrolet, RS9049, and was Rover's first bus. It had been withdrawn by 1932."

Many thanks for this fantastic information.
