Title
Community & the Human Spirit: Oral Histories from Montreal's Point St. Charles, Griffintown & Goose Village
Abstract
A collection of oral histories detailing the life and times in Canada's "cradle of industrialization", the predominately Irish and later Italian neighbourhoods of the Point, Griffintown and Goose Village. Contributors to this book were all born between the 1920s and 1950s and remember growing up around the east end of the Lachine Canal near the Montreal harbour. It was a time (pre-St. Lawrence Seaway) when ships from far away places navigated the canal and this historic working-class area hummed with the sounds of factories. Families were often large and the streets teemed with children. These oral histories follow contributors' lives to the present day.
