Where We Used to Live
I thought this would be an interesting thread to start—where we used to live.
I lived with my foster parents at 1032 Melrose Avenue, between Bannantyne and Champlain, until I married at 25, in 1967, the year of Expo.
Some of the senior members here in VC might remember my older foster brothers and sisters—Fred Penny; and the Attanasoff family: Nick, Jeanne, Mary, and Mona.
Melrose was a terrific street to live on. Woodland Public School was down at one end and Verdun High School at the other. I had a great bunch of childhood friends; and the neighbours were warm and friendly, often looking out for each other but without interfering.
Below, here is where I used to call home, on the flat above the bicycle.
Fond memories, indeed . . .
