Pop Gus Ryder talks about his mother buying a home
Pop Gus Ryder
Mum was moving into another house. At first it was a rented home because some people had left there and my Mum she went and seen if she could apply for that but she wanted to buy it and leaving our old humpty do what we had and going into another area where galvanised roofs and tin, everything was spectacular really. She battled for a while to try and buy it and she did go through the agreements with the person called Curlewis and she did go because I know my money, my twenty bucks a week, was going into that as well and my Dad’s three pound or six pound or whatever it was he put it in. We were sort of using it that way to pay for the house and that little home was great.
