  1. I began my five year apprenticeship at R.J. Paterson’s Katoomba Monumental Works January 1954, on 4th July 1955 I began work at Loveridge and Hudson’s stone yard at Brown Street Lewisham where I completed my apprenticeship and later worked as draftsman for the granite yard. The company carried out the stonework for the Reserve Bank in Hobart and my family and I spent 18 months there returning to Sydney in 1976. I remained with the company until 1984 after working also as site supervisor for a number of years. Mr Colin Hudson was a well respected man and I remember him well having worked in the office next to his office for about 15 years.
