Sunday Outing To Portobello Beach 1938

Sunday Outing To Portobello Beach 1938

About this memory

Mary Farquhar with her children Alma (middle) and Irene (right) and their friend Margaret Mill (left).

“This was a real treat to get taken to the beach on a sunny Sunday. Everyone had the same idea and it took us forever to get to ‘Porty’ from our house in Presentonfield. We had to travel to the GPO first by bus, then get the tram car. The queues were miles long!” – Alma Laing (née Farquhar)

Donor number: 0113-001
