Congratulations Harry and Emily. I enjoyed reading your post.
I took the O bus from Norton to school at Trinity in Stockton. After we moved to South Bank, I took the O bus from North Ormesby to get to Trinity (1947-51). Later, I worked 3 summers on the Middlesbrough buses and 1 on United, as a conductor, while I was home from university. Stockton buses were better. I still use the bus from from Norton when I visit the UK.
Lots of old memories.
