Ann James

Growing up with Mayoral grandparents and a father who was an Alderman, Ann James was intimately bound to the civic life of Wollongong from the 1940s 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.
