School

"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 mates.

Some 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!

Swimming

"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!

Fruit Shop

I recall a fruit shop in Bath Street that would sell you a bag of broken biscuits for a penny or a few chipped apples!!
