Ten Pound Poms

Known as 10 Pound Poms (or 10 Pound tourists, or 10 Pound Brits or Ten Pounders), these were the British citizens who immigrated to Australia in the fifties and sixties under an assisted passage scheme, which cost 10 pounds for adults. Those under 18 were free to travel.

This is the Castel Felice, the ship that brought my parents to Australia along with my oldest brother and sister.
