Maria Corolla

Maria Corolla's family followed their father to Australia in 1948. Her family spent some time in Penrith before settling in Horsley Park.

Ah yes, there was two ships that we came out on. We stayed at Cairo because the ship was so dirty that they wouldn't extend any further. So um we had to wait one month, in Cairo, which I've got a photo over there. And um and then wait for the other ship to pick us up. And that ship's name was, I think it was Totty.
