Res.5.14 Married couple, ages unknown, owner occupiers, female interviewer, 28 November 1961

Identifier: EUA IN1/ACU/S3/4/2/5/14

Scope and Contents

Male INTVEE likes to read, his favourite books are the Hornblower books. They are both very positive about the National Health Service and think it is the best in the world. Given the cost they think people should be prepared to pay the small amounts they are asked to pay for prescriptions, spectacles etc. Male INTVEE paid £2-7-6d for his NHS glasses. They think there is a need for a family centre and male INTVEE remembers the University Settlement at Niddrie which had a gymnasium, showers, games room and billiards. The only time there was a considerable gathering was at the Sunday school picnics. These events were the only ones were the social barriers between Wardieburn people and the owner occupiers or renters were not in evidence. Male INTVEE thinks they have a different outlook to renters but in Niddrie where there was the settlement everyone was more equal.
