Yes I remember putting my feet in one of those foot X-ray machines. I
think it was at one of the big dept stores on St Catherines St. I'm
sure our feet and probably most of the rest of our bodies got a huge
dose of radiation. Imagine how much the salesman got being around the
machine all day. Another one of the many hazards of growing up in the
50's. Somehow we survived!
I remember Taylor’s Store in St Lambert had one as well.

I am writing to you to see if you can give me any information on how Ted Newbury is progressing after his recent heart attack. I knew Ted and his family in 1948 and spent many happy times with them in Greenfield Park.I think at that time they lived on Empire Ave.Their mum died and their dad remarried a widow with a son Jimmy. There were four in the family,Ted,Ethel,Sister,and I am not to sure if they had a brother or a sister.I would appreciate any info you can give me on how Ted is doing.I am just learning the computor business and after punching in Greenfield Park I came across your web site.From then on I looked up Ted and that is how I found out that he had a heart attack.Sorry to be a pest,I am enclosing my e-mail address if you do find out anything new regarding Ted's health.
Sincerely Greta Gamey.
