As a regular reader of the Burwood Bulletin I am really impressed with the articles on history. I very much enjoyed the pieces about the former picture theatre in Ashburton and the Historical Radio Society of Australia.

We are really most fortunate to have you producing such a good magazine in this region. I have loved your articles on local histories.

Carters' Bus

Being driven by Carter – a reader’s memories

IN 1964, I landed a casual weekend job washing R.G. Carter’s buses using a broom, four-gallon can and a hose. The depot was a very ramshackle, dilapidated but fascinating place. Neither of its two buildings, a house and a former blacksmith’s forge, had been painted for decades. Carter’s had five old buses and five fairly new ones. Buses of the ’40s and ’50s were nothing like those of today. They were noisy; had no heating or air conditioning, some had no door; they were freezing in winter and often unbearably hot in summer.
