On a morning in early September 1934, an older brother and I left our home on what is now Teal Road and walked one-half mile to Porter Road. There, we boarded a school bus headed for Midway School. A picture of that bus accompanies this column. The bus was a Model "T" Ford with pull down shades and its battery sitting on the running board. The driver was C. L "Buddy" McGuirt.
