Day in the life of a tyre maker…September 1914

My old school friend started working as a tyre maker to help the men whilst they are at war. It sounds horrible…

Today was just the same was any other, taping up rubber to the tyres,making them. It’s very boring. I want to go out and fight but women aren’t allowed. I do the same thing every day and my only days of are Sunday. I work the long hours of 6am till 9pm at night and earning very little money. As a middle class girl I think I deserve a better and well paid job. Mama said that that I was lucky I was hired for he job but I believe better. Some of my friends don’t have to work like Alexandra as her mama said she could only be Police women or Governess. I hope the war ends…
