Let's continue with Olive's story
Throughout her whole life she attended the Methodist Church where they were living. When she was courting Bert they were attending Albert St. Church and they belonged to the Tennis club. They each belonged to the Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W.C.A. After 6 years of courtship they were engaged on her 21st birthday and married in the Valley Methodist Church on the 11th April 1931. They had put a deposit on a house at Marquis St. Annerley, and went there on their wedding night.
They spent their honeymoon in Sydney but while they were there the Banks closed their doors and they had concerns getting money to return home.
 Bert worked with his brothers in a Paint & Hardware Store they ran.
