51 years ago today, I walked through the revolving doors into Poultry and Princes Street Branch and I was awe-struck at the size of the place.
I stayed there until my retirement in 2002.
I worked with some real characters.
Most of the departmental managers at the time had come from places like the Daily Herald. Bill Challis who wandered around the branch always with the requisite scrap of paper in his hand. Ken Corbett, in Town Office. Vera Francis and Jean 'Hetty' Green and Guy Fisher, Manager of Overseas Department.
