Soon after arriving in Australia, my parents and I were moved to our fourth migrant hostel (Bonegilla, Scheyville, Villawood and then…) Matraville, in Pozieres Ave.
With some other kids, from the hostel, I remember catching the tram to La Perouse.
It WAS 1956. No Port Botany then. No huge container ships. Ah. Yes. The 50s! Those were the days, my friends. Happy Days. Did wear the pink shoelaces and the Cookie jacket. (77 Sunset Strip!)
