From the late 1940s, bus services on the Cowal peninsula were operated by the associated firms of Cowal Motor Services and Baird's. These were run by the Graham brothers, Alex running the bus firm Dunoon Motor Services from John Street (who traded as Cowal Motor Services after Alex's death) and Harry running Baird's, the coaches, black-cab taxis and funeral service from Auchamore Road. In later years everything was operated from this latter depot. SWH480 was a Bedford SB5 with Duple Super Vega C41F bodywork, a style of body which was very popular with the twin operators.
