‘My father Cecil (Barney), waterfront worker and mother Joyce, waterfront canteen worker along with my older sister Roselyn and brother Ronnie lived in a one-bedroom flat in Cambridge St. The Rocks. They moved to 12 High St. Millers Point in the 1940s to a three-bedroom unit which was regarded as a treat back then. I was born to 12 High St. in July of 1949, attended the Council run Lance Kindergarten at the bottom of High St. like most of the children of the waterside workers, going on to St. Brigid’s Catholic Primary School, thence on to Fort Street Primary.’
