Youngest Tram Driver in Dundee

I may have been the youngest tram driver in Dundee when they went off in 1956. I was just 22 years old when I was approached by the Corporation Union chap while working as a conductor on the Lochee Road.

I was on duty driving my tram along the Lochee Road one day, when I looked in my mirror, there was no one getting off, so I started off again when I heard a cry from the front, " keep your thing still till I get me clothes off ", an elderly woman had put her basket at the front of the tram and I had forgotten to hand her the washing. It was a humorous situation.
