Ann James

Growing up with Mayoral grandparents and a father who was an Alderman, Ann James’ life was intimately bound up with the civic life of Wollongong from the 40’s through to the present. She attended almost every function or occasion and saw a lot of the behind the scenes action involved with staging official events at the Town Hall.
