Lorraine Harvey

"We didn't have any shoes"

From hardship to resilience

Born at home in Glen Huntly, in the suburbs of Melbourne, Lorraine was the third of six children. Despite hardships, she cherishes her childhood memories. At the tender age of six, she tragically lost her father. It was a sad, tough time for the family but they managed to get by and stuck together. Lorraine eventually found work as a skilled seamstress. When she met her future husband, she fondly recalls, “He could dance. That was the main thing.”
