What socio-economic background did Sophie belong to? What are the indicators of her family's financial status?
There are several things that shows that belong to lower middle class, they wanted Sophie to work in a biscuit factory immediately after school, which is normal thing for someone from a family like her's. Her entire family of 5 people, two brothers Geoff and Derek, and her parents. They use to live in a small house. Where all the windows were black and room was steamy and when she returns home after school she felt chocked and disgusted due to dteam and piled dirty dishes at croner. Her mother was so much into do all house chaos that her back was crooked and bent. Her father's grimy and sweaty face after coming from work shows that he is a hard labourer. Her brother Geoff also started work immediately after his school as an apprentice mechanic in a garage situated far away from his home.
