    Audio Transcript

    Our big thrill was, one afternoon a week, the boys went to carpentry class and the girls went to Dewson Street School for domestic science.  They really had very good equipment there and we made a lot of things.  Actually, the lemon pie recipe that I got at Dewson Street School, I used all my life.  It was a very happy occasion to go up there for the afternoon.
