      Old Singer Sewing Machine
      Extract from recorded interview with Douglas CAMPBELL (DC) and his wife Irene (IC) in 1984:

      IC : My mums dad, a seafaring man, she used to tell me that in their home they used to have great barrels of things, like there'd be a barrel full of nuts in one corner, and a barrel of something else in another corner! (laughter) And remember. And remember when mum said that she had this old sewing machine, this old singer sewing machine her father bought her, and it had no lid on it, he made the lid from an old box! (laughter). And that went with mum all through her life and I had it in the end and I think I passed it on to our Sue at one time, or somebody had it I don't know who had it! But that lasted years around... old singer sewing machine.

      But I can remember my mother saying when she was in service which couldn't have been long because kids left school at what 13, 14, mum married at 17. And I can always remember one thing, that her saying her mistress told her how to clean lettuce, and I can always remember this, where she said, the long Cos lettuce, and you cut it in half and you held it under the tap, and you let the tap run down the leaves and it will take any flies or insects out, and then you'd give it a good shake and that's the way she would she wanted her lettuce clean, I can always remember mum telling me about that. I think she got about two shillings a week (laughter).
      JS: And where did she work? In London or
      IC: In London yes. Somewhere in London... Because, as I say she was married at 17 so she couldn't have been working very long
      AS: And she married a seafaring guy? No, no this is your mum!
      IC: No this is my mum, but her
      AS: Its her father who was the seafaring man.
      IC: That's right yes, he was the seafaring man. He was at sea quite a lot, and she used to say it was lovely when he'd come home because they had so many things brought home!
