Everybody knew who I was wherever I went. They’d say “oh! You’re [father’s name]’s son aren’t you? There was also not a single kid anywhere that I didn’t know, or if I didn’t know them then they would know my sister. Everybody’s parents all worked at the same company, and the house you lived in was determined by your status in the company.
