Interviewed by Rosemary Christmas on 5 February 2001

I started work in 1931 shipping newspapers, I was 15 then and getting 15 shillings a week, and I managed on that and with that I was able to give my mum and dad something, and go to the pictures, which was at the Southern Cross Theatre in Neutral Bay, or the Kinema Theatre in Mosman for a shilling on a Saturday night in the front stalls, or if you took a girlfriend you might spent 1/3 or 1/6d and something to buy a chocolate. The fare into town on a tram and a ferry was only 2/6d a week.
