James and I are considering collaborating on a book about life in Cambridge in the 70’s and 80’s. We’d like to get different writers to write their memories of growing up in Galt, Preston and Hespeler. In the stories I write I’d like to include quotes from others who were there. (My memories of the 70’s and 80’s tend to be a little fuzzy.)
There are too many stories of people , places and events to go untold. Leisure Lodge, The Matador, The Sunset…it’s our duty to preserve these memories.
Every few days we’ll post something about the history of Cambridge, and we invite you to comment. Depending on participation and interest, I hope to have a book later this year.
The Flood seems to be an appropriate place to begin.
The Flood of 74 happened shortly after we became Cambridge, and it solidified us a community. What are your memories of the flood?
The video below is one I did for the reunions last year.
