Home-What life was like

Jobs

Kids helped with jobs inside the house and helped with cooking. Many would have had to put the empty milk bottles out each night as the fresh bottles were delivered each morning.

One grandad said that he would go to the bakers to get the fresh bread and mow the lawns. Some grandparents did things like help feed the cows and clean the cowshed when they were young.

It was easy to get jobs back then. Our grandparents did jobs like being a cabinet maker or a farmer.

One grandad said that they got the milk delivered to their house each morning. It would be poured into a billy at the gate.

There was lots of cleaning and washing to do. One grandparent did bookeeping using a bookeeping machine.

Bread, meat and groceries were delivered by horse and cart.
