Sylvia Curry was born and grew up in the North East of England. In the 1950s, after the 2nd World War, Sylvia was a small child and in this interview she recounts some of her happy childhood memories. Sylvia came from a very creative family and they were always making things. Children back then were allowed to play freely as there was a real sense of freedom. Sylvia remembers some of the childhood games her and her friends used to play, dressing up for the coronation in 1953 and making hand-made Easter eggs. Sylvia also talks about how post-war rationing affected people's lives and how the role of women has changed drastically since then.
