The name FA Fitzpayne MIEE
appeared on the cover of this transport map:
He was General Manager of
Edinbrugh Corporation Dept from 1928 to 1934. See the table
After adding the details above to the web site, I was surprised
to receive an e-mail from Brian Fitzpayne
beside the Bus Doors
"My father John Wynn
drove buses for Edinburgh Corporation from 1929 to 1936.
One of his bosses at the time was named Fitzpayne.
father must have thought pretty highly of him
when I was born in 1937, he gave me Fitzpayne as my middle name.
Subsequently, for several years
in the late 1940s, I clearly remember seeing the name Fitzpayne
panted beside the passenger doors of
buses. I enjoyed pointing this name out and telling that
I was named after Fitzpayne.
This was several years after FA
Fitzpayne held the position of General Manager in Edinburgh, but
perhaps the buses were not repainted too often, or perhaps there was
another Fitzpayne (son or brother?) who may have held that position
in the late 1940s.
