What are the chances that you look on the Internet for an Eaton's Punkinhead Collector Plate - and come across a Greenfield Park blog ? And not only that - you see pictures of houses on Murray. I used to live at 432! (My Mum still lives in the Park on Tisseur Street).
Then to see photos of the Mike Reid Tournament - my daughter, June, used to go to Mackay Centre with Mike.
Sad to learn today that Darrell Hollingdrake Desormeaux passed away. When I was a property manager (in Kitchener) one of the high-rise buildings needed to have a roof repaired. A crew came down from Montreal and although the young 'leader' looked familiar I couldn't place where I may have seen him. After asking him which part of Montreal he lived, he said Greenfield Park. What a co-incidence! And you guessed it - it was Darrell's son. (He sure looked like Claude).
Am having fun going through the 'posts' - what a walk down memory lane... wonder if anyone remembers when the siren would blow at 9:00 p.m. and teens were not allowed on the streets after that time?
All those people that I know... all the familiar names...
The Atwater Market - I grew up not far from there (moved to the Park when I was 17) and Dickie Pope lived next door; Georgia Holland's family lived across from my aunt's in Cote-St-Paul.
Someone was asking about a girl who lived on Murray - Anita. That was Anita Kozlak. She also lived on Newbury; then moved to Newberry Park in California.
Nice to see pictures of Gus Richardson - I live in B.C. too.
Anita Married Charlie Banning who I worked for in the 60’s
