Silverknowes Terminus

Thank you to John Stewart, formerly of Leith, now living in Livingston, West Lothian for sending me this photo.

Driver and Conductor

"This photo was taken for me by another driver, using my camera. It shows me as the driver and my conductor `Sailor` Martin in front of our No 16 Edinburgh Corporation Transport bus at Silverknowes in 1964 or 1965. The bus was a Leyland Titan.

The photo shows the obligatory uniform that we all had to wear.  Notice the watch chain above my pocket.   Note the caps. You would be reported and disciplined if an Inspector caught you without the cap on.  Changed days now.

Mind you the drivers almost invariably took their caps off when driving.
