|Scottish immigrant in the Waikato : Rotowaro in 1940s|
Moved to Rotowaro July 1947, attended school there, schooled in the local church as short of classrooms. Discusses "Jo Jo Town" (nickname of street where she lived, named after old Maori character).
Differences between Pukemiro and Rotowaro, seven streets in Rotowaro, everything done by train, little road transport.
Students travelled into Huntly High School for manual lessons -cookery, carpentry every Friday. Lots of visiting done.
Remembers going to the pictures at Rotowaro on Sunday night, kids serials, having to avoid `night-cart man' (who emptied the dry toilets),
"You'd take a big breath and hold your breath for as long as you could
and walk as fast as you could, to get as far as you could away from him"
