About this memory

“My mother was a Leither! I was born in Newhaven. My mother could not have picked a better place to be born, than in Newhaven. Because everyone knew everybody. And everyone would always help each other out. Even if it was someone who was short of money, because they didn’t get a big enough catch.”
