1936 Came from County Kerry
You moved away trying to better yourself.
In 1958 my parents paid a £120 deposit for a new house in Barton Le Clay. It was very isolated and quiet there.
I went to Los Angeles, USA and had a great job looking after children.
You remember so much of the past but forget what happened last week.
I got married in 1970 (aged 33) My husband worked at Vauxhall, on building construction and on the motorways. It was difficult to get work at Vauxhall; it depended on who you knew.
I worked in Jacksons factory on Assembly line work and then at Sainsburys Bacon counter. In those days, you could change jobs and get another job very quickly.
