A Set of Teeth

About Violet's Story

A Set of Teeth is a story recounted by Violet Roydhouse about her false teeth. It was common when she was growing up to have your teeth out at home, and for Violet it was quite early in her life. Her teeth were taken out by the dentist on the kitchen table, and she had to save up for months to buy herself her new teeth, which she still has today, aged 92.


Violet's story was recorded as part of the Time on My Hands project which is recording memories of Holderness folk for the Hedon Museum.
