Next week Les Dion will get out of the office and behind the wheel of one of his family's buses for a very special event.
On November 13, Mr Dion will be driving around, picking up passengers to share their memories on camera.
The project, filmed by Yesterday Stories' Sandra Pires, will form part of an exhibition on the Dion family at the Wollongong Art Gallery, which opens next month.
"It's remembering the kinds of things people got up to and how the Dion's buses and the families treated everyone, including during the Depression and some of the coalmining strikes," Ms Pires said.
"They would pick up people when they saw them walking. During the Depression especially, people would have to walk from, say, Corrimal to Wollongong to the dole office to get their funds.
"The Dion bus drivers would see people walking and stop to pick them up."
The recorded interviews will also form part of Ms Pires' Yesterday Stories project.
The project aims to collect video histories of the area with the view to including 100 short films about Wollongong that will feature on an app to be launched early next year.
Those willing to tell their Dion-related stories on the bus can contact Ms Pires on 4285 3545 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
