B/W print; Ellen Bulfield, the last First World War woman bus conductor, 1919
I think the idea of the last women bus conductor after the First World War is indicative of the way I was brought up to believe that women were second class citizens. My views have changed now but that's how it was at the time. I wanted to be a bus conductor myself but couldn't because I was too tall at 6'4'.
