I left school in 1947
I should have gone
to Art School. But it wasn’t possible for family
reasons. So a few years later when I left my hometown
Kirkcaldy, in Scotland, to live in Portsmouth I got a
job with a photographer.
This was fortunate as
it followed on that when I went to London when I was 21,
my working career was with the Pathé Film Company. Then
as an Art Buyer in an Advertising Agency and later as
Personal Assistant to a West End London Advertising Photographer.
Not taking photographs but as a Girl Friday, running the
office, booking models and getting props.
