MRS M.H. ROBERTS (Midland) [9.13 am]: […] My great-grandfather drove one of the first vehicles in Midland. He was a bicycle repairman and he also made bicycles at his workshop on Great Eastern Highway. My grandmother was born there in 1910 and was the eldest of his children. She told me that as a little girl she would often go with him in the T-model Ford that he used to drive, which was one of the few vehicles in Midland at that time. At times it doubled as a taxi, town ambulance, undertaker’s vehicle and any other form of emergency vehicle that was required.

Mr T.R. Buswell: Hopefully not all on the same journey!

Mrs M.H. ROBERTS: Sometimes there was a bit of doubling up! My grandmother told me quite a few interesting stories. I have only a short time for this grievance.
