General Notes:
1899 SA Births 649/469 ANDERSON Donald George, John ANDERSON, Mary GUNTER, Adelaide

Don was born at Goodwood; he went to Thebarton Primary School. His schooling finished when his father died in December 1913. He began work in an office but that job was curtailed when he turned 18y and was required for Military training.

(exerpt of letter written by Mary Ann Anderson (nee Gunter) to her son, Harry Anderson, 20 Nov 1917, image 313) -

"Don has to go into camp next month for 8 days; by rights he should be going Friday, but he can't be spared as two others are going from the same office, so he has to go with the Broken Hill & Port Pirie lot & he does not relish it".
(Don's children were unaware of his working in an office or that he had any WW1 Army Training, but it is likely that he did as he turned 18y on 5 Nov 1917.)

At the time of his first marriage Don was a driver delivering bread by horse and cart for Frank Leane, baker at Southwark.
At the time of his second marriage he was working for Frank Leane, but later, and closer to home he worked for Davies Coop Cotton Mill at Kilkenny, and later for G H Michell at Hindmarsh.
During his working life Donald was a member of the Rachabite Lodge which was to provide assistance to his family should anything unforseen happen to him.

Memories of my father, Donald George Anderson, written by George Ross ANDERSON (as at May 2013)
My first memories of my father were of him coming home at breakfast time from work (he worked three shifts) at the Cotton Mills - Davies Coop, opposite East Avenue and next to Kilkenny Primary School where we children Ross, Colin and Mary all eventually went. After some time he worked for G.H. Michell in Adams Street, Hindmarsh (only two shifts, I think). He was a bit of an old bower bird, he brought home all the bolts and nuts he found in the wool bales and stored them in an old aluminium pot, which we all used years later when we were old enough to buy cars.
Friday nights when he had been to the pub "The Hope Inn" he would sing coming up the side of the house and if tea was cold he would hear about it. On the weekends our families from both sides would come and visit, among them was his sister, Gell, (Jessie) and they would sit around the old wood stove drinking, she Sherry, him Port. How she drove home sometimes I'll never know. Her car was a late 40s Ford Anglia which had the same set of tyres on it after 40 years according to Dad.) After a big Sunday roast Dad would fall asleep at the dinner table and wake up when visitors came.
He always tried to grow some veggies in the backyard, some successfully, some not so, but we had trees, orange and lemon which we helped plant - I remember we saved up all our old used fruit tins and buried them where the trees were to be - there was also a large apricot, peach, quince, almond and fig trees. The almond trees were in the chook yard (½ doz. chooks for eggs), and an old septic tank upended for an incinerator. Grape vines grew on a trellis across the back of the house which provided shelter during the hot summer days.
As Colin and I were growing up we needed a separate bedroom to the one we all slept in, so we helped Dad enlarge and enclose the back verandah, clad, line and paint before moving in (it did not require Council approval because they never got to hear of it).
We also had a rainwater tank that leaked until Mum's brother-inlaw, Uncle Ken, rendered the inside which made it usable again - Dad was pleased, as in those days ordinary folk had to look out and do for themselves.
After we all married Dad never finished jobs that he started around the home, so he and Marj sold up and went to live in Southern Cross Homes on Port Rush Road, Evandale until he died on 27 March 1976, then Mum moved to Southern Cross Homes, pre-Nursing Home accommodation, at South Plympton.

Marjorie Louise HUGHES - my mother - recorded by Mary Anderson
Marjorie Louise was born at Cherry Gardens in December 1902, she was the eldest of seven children. At some time between 1904 and 1906 the family moved to the city and lived at various addresses at Payneham and North Adelaide. Marjorie trained as a primary school teacher. In those days that training was learning on the job alongside a qualified teacher in a classroom situation. In 1921 when she was considered 'trained' her career began and records show she taught as Nailsworth, Clare, Plympton, Waikerie, Nairne, Walkerville Schools, with a second and final stint at Nairne.
During her single days, Marjorie and a number of her teaching contemporaries travelled during their holidays to Sydney and Hobart. Under Events many of her old photographs are displayed; some taken at picnics in the hills and others as beach-belles at the seaside.
I believe Marj and Don Anderson met playing tennis - in any event they married on 10 April 1938 at Maughan Church Franklin Street Adelaide. For Marj this changed her life dramatically as in those days a female working in a Government position had to resign when they married!
They made their home at Price Weir Ave Allenby Gardens where they reared a family of three children. Marj and Don provided a home of love, nurture and care; being prosperous to that end, but few luxuries. Good work ethics and musical talents were encouraged.
Marj's 1938 Electoral Roll Card and her 1944 Identity Card are still extant and can be seen in the Events Gallery.
When her children married and moved away in the 1960s Marj and Don eventually sold their home of 30 years and bought a unit which was part of the Southern Cross homes at Portrush road. When Don died in 1976 Marj moved into full-time care at Southern Cross Homes at Marion road Plympton where she remained until her death in 1988.
