Alice started her working life as a domestic science teacher in Inverness in 1938 at the age of 21. She chose the job because she was interested in food. She had completed her teacher training in Edinburgh. Her working day began at 9 a.m. and the children finished at 4 p.m. in those days. She got a lunchtime break but she couldn’t go home. In her time off she went Highland dancing, playing badminton, tennis and travelling including to New Zealand.
