My father William came to Australia from Scotland in 1913 when he was four years old with his mother and two younger sisters, his father had arrived a few months earlier. This photo was taken in 1915 after the arrival of his youngest sister. My father grew up in Sydney, his father was a baker and William, when he was old enough was apprenticed to his father. I have very little information about his young life, he did not talk much about growing up in Sydney or the things they did as children. He began working for his father as a young teenager and worked long, hard hours in the bakery. Later in life he ran his own, very successful business and was well respected in the industry.
