The transport firm was started by Richard Fox, who initially bought a pony and cart for his produce business, then branched into light transport with cabs and a wagonette. In time the firm moved into motorised transpot, with a char-a-banc and later, a bus. The firm operated from premises on Meynell Avenue, where Richard Fox ran it with brothers Robert and James; all three were described in the 1911 census as carting agents.
