The author of a book "CHIPS AND COUPONS IN OLD SHANGHAI" from 2005 was so kind to meet with me and share and let me photograph some of his coupons from old Shanghai. Those were issued by China General Omnibus Co., Ltd.

These coupons, the author has for sell so if someone is interested in this company or in those bus coupons---you can contact with me by emai: cfrost1984@gmail.com

I was able to find out that China General Omnibus Co., Ltd. was registered in Hongkong on 22nd August 1946 with number 0002044 and was operating in Hongkong till 22nd February 1957 when it was dissolved. It is similar case like Hall & Holtz Ltd. First those 2 companies were operating in Shanghai later they moved to Hongkong and start their business in 1946. Very interesting!:)

If you compare it with Hall & Holtz Ltd.
http://en.hkcomp.info/hongkong/cps.jsp?key=2106-158a46fc

You can notice that both companies were registered on the same date: 22nd August 1946...coincidence?

On last Thursday (2013.03.07) I discovered something VERY interesting---a new variety of 3 cents old Shanghai bus token from 1939 goes right. 3 cents has 2 varieties. The common one has 3 lines above bus windows and the rare one doesn't have any line.
Please take a look.

Dear SANDAC,

Thank you for sharing this postcard with double-decker bus:)

The China General Omnibus Co., Ltd. and Hall & Holtz Ltd. are my 2 favorite old Shanghai companies and I love to hear some information or watch  photos of postcard which shows those 2 companies or are related with those 2 companies.
