Dorothy Mary De Low

Dorothy De Low was born in Wembley, England in 1910. Her family travelled to Australia in !910 where her father had already purchased a home in Beaconsfield Street, Fairfield.

No way, nobody would wear school uniform. I just wore hand-me-downs from my two older sisters. I didn't ever have a new dress in my life. And I didn't have a new pair of shoes until I went to work and bought them myself. I had hand-me-downs or bare feet and I was happy that way.
