Joyce Hyslop

“We used to wheel our washing down to the steamie in an old pram”

Joyce, 65, has lived in Dumfries all of her life. She told us about her favourite memories in the steamie with her mother. She even admitted to skipping school on the odd occasion because she enjoyed the community and gossip with the mothers. We then talked about the Dock Park and Joyce remembered how happy she was to have the park- it was a rarity to see a park in a community.
