"Here is a photo of me looking 'aghast' at
the person beside me drinking their juice without a straw. This
picture was taken at ECT Leith Bus Depot, Leith Walk. I must have been
about five or six.
My father was a bus driver and every year
there was a real Christmas Party in the garage, not a disco but games and
songs and then the lights went out and everyone sang 'Jingle Bells' and
Santa Claus appeared and all the children got a present.
Note the healthy food, sausage rolls
and sandwiches, washed down with juice.
There was also a Summer picnic to Alva every
year with streamers hanging out the windows of the buses and plastic cups
round our necks
