Long Distance Clara
As a kid of around 6 or 7, I used to really look forward to Pigeon Street - not for Mr Macadoo and his pals, mind you - no, for Long Distance Clara. Long Distance Clara was a woman on a mission. In a strictly male dominated world of trucking, she was a red-haired, no-nonsense, can-do kinda girl - punctually 'picking up and dropping off' her wares.
'She can drive across the Sahara - nothing's too far away'. Well, exactly.
'Always on time, she's never late'. A tip-top feminist role model.
Long distance Clara appears between 06.12 and 07.52 in the clip below.
