When Trudie's family moved to Victoria BC in 1930, they first rented a house on Cranmore, and then for a short time on Gorge Road near the bridge and the Japanese Gardens. But most of her childhood years were spent living in their family home on Tattersall Drive in the High Quadra area of Victoria.
Trudie's memories include many of the neighbouring houses and families including Miss Chamberlain, the Snapes, the Pollard mansion with a ballroom on the third floor, the Chestnut family, Miss Bailey her first piano teacher, Miss Kitchen on the hill, Miss Wilkinson the photographer, and Major Pearkes who later became the 20th Lieutenant Governor of BC.
And what a thrill it was to get their first car! Be sure to listen to this delightful audio clip.
