Working a drapers shop in Lossiemouth by May Farquhar

May was a junior assistant. Her job included cutting faceclothes out of terry nappies and sweeping and brushing the floors.  Her boss was very strict and she struggled to understand him sometimes. She got Sundays off and worked a half day on Wednesdays. She was earning 9 /-  week in 1944 when she was 14. May did enjoy working there.
