Details:

In March 1916 Bournemouth & District Motor Services was registered as a company; expansion of the business a few years later meant this title no longer represented the area served, so from July 1920 the Company became Hants & Dorset Motor Services Limited.
One of the best known and best loved transport operators in Southern England, Hants & Dorset's green buses were a familiar sight for over 50 years before they were repainted red during the National Bus Company era in the early 1970s.

The Hants & Dorset name disappeared from the sides of buses in April 1983, but the services have continued under new names and flourish in the 21st century.
This book celebrates the 100 years from 1916 to 2016 with a series of evocative photographs that capture the flavour of the time when they were taken, and brings the story up to date with a brief look at part of the business that still carries the Hants & Dorset name in 2016.
