The Graham Crawford Show

The Graham Crawford Show was created out of a belief that we need to talk about the issues and opportunities facing Hamilton in a way that generates debate and fosters understanding. The goal of show is to provide smart, progressive talk from regular panelists, subject matter experts, and personal observations. The show is posted weekly and always focuses on issues affecting you and the City of Hamilton. All of the people involved in The Graham Crawford Show do so because they believe that dialogue creates understanding. And the more we understand our city, the better we can all help it to realize its potential. All of the shows are recorded in downtown Hamilton in the studios of QED Media. Let’s talk Hamilton.

This time on the Paul Wilson Edition of the Graham Crawford Show, we’re going into the Paul Wilson archives, although to the very recent archives.
We talk with Paul about a column he wrote that appeared in the Hamilton Spectator on October 27, 2015 called "A 10 Stop Trip Back in Time".
The column is centred around a Hamilton Spectator archival photograph taken in 1970 of a section of downtown Hamilton taken from the vantage point of the pedestrian bridge at the rear of City Hall looking north east toward Main and James.
Be sure to have a look at the photograph before and/or while you listen to the show. It’s a great slice of Hamilton’s past and our discussion mines the photograph for memories and stories about Hamilton’s downtown.
Let’s keep talking Hamilton.

A wealth of history in this 1970 photograph

This picture was taken in the spring of 1970 to show the excavation underway for the Canadian Football Hall of Fame next to City Hall. But there's lots more to look at in this snapshot of downtown past.
