These galleries cover the first era of bus services worked from Oldham garage and include services started before the garage on Wallshaw Street opened. Nearly all these services were started by Oldham Corporation, although one or two had origins with other operators.

The story of each service is continued until it stopped running in a form that had any recognisable link with the original service. Thus many of these galleries continue into the PTE and post-deregulation eras and in some cases the services are still running today.

Services are generally listed by their original service designation, but there are exceptions - the key below shows where to find any service:
