Vincent Sutcliffe: ...because it was the Depression years you had to leave home at 14 because the day you turned 14 the government stopped your dole.

Shirley McLeod: Oh, is that right?

Vincent Sutcliffe: Yes, your dole allowance so you had to go out and find a job. So, the day I turned 14 I did three things. I left school, I left home and I started work.
