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.
