Margaret Joy’s work in Speech and Language in St Andrews

Margaret’s first job was in the Citizen Office in St Andrews. It was 1942 and she was 14 years of age. She worked in the library because she liked working with the books. She earned 8 shillings a week in the Citizen office. She had to start work at 7 a.m. and finished work at 6 p.m. She had to put out the morning papers and looked after the library. She met a lot of local people. There was no job training. You just learnt on the job. In her spare time she went swimming and played tennis.

Margaret Joy was interviewed by S2 pupils from Elgin High School
