Billy was borm in 1911. Billy vividly recalls the return of troops from WWI and the subsequent flu epidemic, and bubonic plague - 'They were dying like flies!' The Wooolloomooloo that Billy describes is a tough working class area betset with poverty and where 'the women seemed to do more work than the men'. He describes the community its strengths and trails, post war and in the depression years. Its a very lively account.
