Living Heritage Podcast

Aug 10, 2017

In September 2016 researcher Terra Barrett spent a week in Grand Falls-Windsor collecting stories and memories of Main Street, Windsor. This was part of the Merchants and Memories project which was a partnership between the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Grand Falls-Windsor Heritage Society. The Society wanted to focus on Windsor to celebrate the diverse community that grew up on Main Street across from the train station. This podcast is a selection of memories about Main Street which take the listener back to the heyday of the shopping district of Windsor. Take a listen to learn more about fights at the pool hall, movies at the Vogue Theatre, people watching at the train station, and shopping at Riff’s and Cohen’s.

Listening to the residents of Grand Falls-Winsor brought back some memories of my own childhood in St John's. However, to hear about the diversity of people in such a small bustling community and how they all worked together and helped each other is a refreshing look at parts of our province I will never experience
Well Done!!!!!
