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