"I still have my old autograph book
from Towerbank School with all the teachers' names plus the Janitor
and dinner ladies at that time, not to mention some of my class
of the girls came up to Portobello Secondary school from Towerbank
Primary the others, I think, came from Duddingston Primary. I
don't know where the boys went!
"I remember that we all went to the
Baths from school and had to run all the way back to school if we
took school dinners as I did. As it was a Monday it was SOUP,
yuk! - but on a cold day it warmed you up!
I recall a fruit shop in Bath Street
that would sell you a bag of broken biscuits for a penny or a few
