Each month, I do a Cityist column for The Graham Crawford Show. It’s usually about an issue, or an idea to overcome an issue, or to take advantage of an opportunity. This edition is much more personal. It’s about my first Christmas in Hamilton, having arrived from England in the summer of 1959.
The memories are simple. Told through the eyes of a child. But they are as clear to me today as they were that Christmas almost 60 years ago.
I hope you enjoy it. It’s the first time I’ve really had a way of sharing those immigrant memories with others - through this podcast that Dave Beatty, Alex Zafer and I have created each week since May of 2016. We thank you so much for listening and for commenting. Both mean a great deal to us.
To all of you, from all of us, Merry Christmas Hamilton.
