"Snow White Laundry, here.  It was just behind where the No 2 tram on Granton route is standing.

My dad recalls travelling on that tram, from that stop, as a ten year old boy every Sunday at 6.00am. He and his sister were given a pillowcase each

These were filled with bread and buns that were returned from McVitties Guests shops to their premises in Gorgie, at a cost of sixpence per "bag".   Hard times!"

The Laundry

"The laundry was on the opposite side of the road from Stenhouse Castle.  Stenhouse Castle was at the end of a lane that ran from the rear of the Longstone Inn to Stenhouse Drive/Road.

My dad remembers the laundry well well, and thinks that some  of his cousins worked there."
