Nora Frances Henderson – A Life of Service

This November, 2012, Hamilton HIStory + HERitage will be celebrating 5 years on James Street North. This short video is of a presentation Graham Crawford, Founder of H+H, has made to a number of audiences, including students at McMaster University, minus his narration.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, behold.

The Board of Education Building is threatened with demolition by McMaster University. Rather than build in the parking lot behind the building, which will also be owned by McMaster, the university is choosing to destroy a Hamilton landmark.

Hamilton taxpayers will contribute $20 million to help McMaster demolish this building.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, behold.

Come On-A My House – Growing Up Italian in Hamilton’s North End

The book includes remarkable family photographs dating as far back as the 1920’s, as well as recipes from Anita’s own hand-written recipe book. The photographs reveal the story of Italian immigrant family and their life in Hamilton’s North End on Bay Street North where Anita’s parents and her own house still stand today. The recipes reveal a culture of food, from taralli, to stuffed Ascolano olives, to ravioli. All done Anita’s way.

Whether you’re Italian, or another nationality whose family came to Canada and to Hamilton in particular, you’ll see your own family history reflected in this movie.
