Chat to Peter

Hi, my name is Peter Smith and I come from a middle-class background and have a stable job as a sales representative.

I meet Jo and Helen and am drawn to Jo’s independent spirit and unique outlook on life. We start a romantic relationship, but I struggle to understand her working-class background and the challenges she faces because of it.

As someone from a different class and social background, I have a lot to learn about the realities of life for working-class individuals like Jo and Helen. My story is one of growth and understanding, as I come to appreciate their struggles and learn to see the world through a different lens.

I hope my journey can provide insight into the complexities of class and social dynamics in 1950s England and encourage others to broaden their perspectives and seek understanding across divides.
