Additional Information

The bus system that came to be known as the Greyhound Bus Company was founded by Carl Eric Wickman, an enterprising Swede of Hibbing, Minnesota. The first bus was a seven-passenger Hupmobile touring car that was used to transport miners across the Mesaba Iron Range to and from work. Wickman was soon joined by another Swede, Andrew Anderson, and they began operating in earnest the route from a saloon in Hibbing to the fire-hall in Alice. From this lowly beginning grew the Greyhound Corporation, a multi-million dollar company which, through the years, has owned everything from a chain of hamburger restaurants to a soap company.

I was disappointed that there was no information accompanying the photographs in the book. There was nothing written about what year a bus model was, when and where a photo was taken, or who and/or what was in a photo.
A very detailed and intriguing History of Greyhound buses, especially in the early years; lacks a lot of the history, if any, of the later years.
I was not too interested in the articles concerning the promotional real dog and other celebs; distracted from the real history.
Well worth buying for the early history alone, and then there is the photographs; good.
Very interesting book about Greyhound great for any one in the bus industry or collector. Lots of interesting information.
