Claude was a mechanic in a tile factory, Florence a cutter in a knitting mill and apparently they had done well as they owned their home worth $4000, a fair amount for the day, but they did not have a radio. The boys were still at home, Wayne T, 14 (actually 24), was a knitter in the knitting mill, G Leslie, 18, was a clerk in a dry goods store, and Hugh M, 13, as at home.
