Working Women: An Audiotour for the 55 bus

5 / 10 Hackney Central Station, Stop J

Whether it's the night cleaner 'drowsing along with a scarf on her head,' or the bus conductor's 'clownish' hat, uniforms stand for life restricted. Annie Spike, night cleaner and housewife, published her story in Working Lives: Volume 2, 1945-1977, compiled by 'A People's Autobiography of Hackney' group.
