Barbara Street

Barbara Street talks about growing up and living in Wollongong and shares great insights into the life of women in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Her first job was at AMCO clothing factory and by the age of seventeen she had saved enough money to buy a block of land. Barbara married John Street in 1962.
