I'd been working for almost three years in 1953, that was a great year for me, I was courting the girl who is still my wife. I was also earning great money installing TV's as fast as they came into stock and customers were so grateful that they would be able to watch the coronation on black and white 9", 10" or 12" sets that they all gave a decent size tip. Tips, as you know Geoff are unheard of here in Australia.
