I came to Dundee from Glasgow when I was 10 years old and went to Victoria Road School. At that time I was living in Todburn Lane, then later on my parents moved to Broughty Ferry Road. Later on we moved to 15 Mid Kirk Style.
I went to the Cowgate School until I left at 14 years. My first job was a maid in a hotel in the Nethergate but I didn't like it and left to go to Keillers the sweet factory - that didn't last either. My best pal worked in Baxter's Mill and she got me a job there as a reeller and winder and I stayed there until I was 18 years old and got married and had seven sons in 22 years.
Then my husband died. I stayed a widow for 11 years then I met my second husband in the canteen of the CWS where we both worked. We got married on 2nd October 1976 and we've been together now for 27 years.
