Memories of Snowdon in the 50's

Memories of Snowdon in the 50's grew out of a photo I found in a book about Montreal streetcars by Thomas Grumly. I scanned the photo and sent it to a number of people I knew who had grown up in that area. The response was magic! "Do you remember...., wasn't that fun!...Remember the trips to......will you ever forget....." Those responses stayed with me until January 2006 when I bought an ad in the Personals section of  a newspaper asking for contributions to "Memories of Snowdon in the 50's" By August I had over 80 such contributions. Most of them from people who had lived in the area at some time in their life....a time that people remembered as safe, supportive and fun even though there were diverse backgrounds, religions and languages.
