Ruby’s work for a shoe manufacturer in Glasgow

Ruby was brought up in the East End of Glasgow in a nice house. It had an entrance and two rooms. One room was the kitchen and there was a box bed in the wall with a curtain. Her parents slept in there. She learnt to type and had shorthand lesson to help here find a job. She got an office job in 1940 when she was 14, where she was able to use her newly learnt skills.
