    Description

    Dorothy Duffy interviewed her elder sister, Billy. The interview was about Billy from ages fifteen to twenty five and encapsulated her experience of growing up the second eldest in a family of ten. Her role as the 'girl' in the family helping to raise the younger children as they came along – the impact on her education – the genesis of a love for children and family. A free spirited teenager who always found a way to break out of the constraints of the time (1940s) and always had a rose tinted view of most things including her parents.
