Biography
George left school at the end of grade 6 to work in his father's blacksmith shop. He was the complete artisan when it came to Blacksmithing not only able to shoe horses which he did right up until his death at the age of 84yrs but he could also manufacture complete horse-drawn vehicles and do all the fancy sign writing on them, build the wheels from the hub up and re-tyre them etc.
He educated himself by reading the "readers digest" and enjoyed the word power section to increase his vocabulary. A remarkable man who was loved by all the women and respected by the men. He had a blacksmith shop on Sturt Road Brighton and lived in Waratah St. Sth Brighton.
Lillie George's wife died when I was very young so I never really got to know her.
In his later life he worked in his son's blacksmith shop in Stephenson St South Brighton. He would ride his pushbike from Hyde Park into Adelaide to catch the first train to Brighton work all day then do the return trip in the afternoon.
He was also a very competent lawn bowler playing for the Unley Club.
