My father was English, came out here in the Depression years when I was born, or earlier than that I suppose, and he was a seaman. When mum and dad got married he was a coal lumper and that is what you had to be to live in this area in those times, anything associated with the waterfront. Then he joined the Army and went to the war, came back and went back to the waterfront. He died as a result of an accident on the wharves back in 1953. quote from Millers Point Oral History Project
