This is part 1 of a 2-part program featuring the Life & Times of Phyllis Jones.
When Phyllis was interviewed in 2012 she had reached the grand age of 99. Born in Darlinghurst NSW in 1913 Phyllis shares the stories of her early years.
In doing so, she reminds us of times and events that have now moved into a distant past, into our history. While today we can revel in all the technology and progress brings us, Phyllis reminds us through her stories, of just what we have lost.
We learn how she lost her dad in WWI and of the enormous sacrifices her mother had to make. We are regaled with tales of the Great Depression, of being schooled in Tasmania and of riding the school bus that had roll up canvas sides for windows.
