A Family story:


married in 1920 William Frederick Olsson.

People HAD to retire at 65, and she had worked for many years in the cut glass department at Saunders, the jewellers in King Street, which was later taken over by Angus & Coote. They said farewell to her and she walked round to David Jones, put her age down ten years and landed a job in the handbag department. The day of reckoning came when they did find out her age, but she was so good at sales that they kept her on. She did not retire as such until she was 77. During the Depression she worked as a wool-classer, and she used to sell insurance for AMP. Her first job was as a maid in a doctor’s house at the grand old age of 13.
