Thanks Steamer for bringing back some names to my memory. I was a "paper boy" in the late 60s, an advertising clerk for a while in the early 70s and a reporter for a few years in the late 70s and early 80s. When technology changed, people had to find another role. I saw the same thing happening when I was an editor at Kelowna in the late 80s. I pulled the plug on the teletype machine when the newspaper became computerized (HASTECHs).
Wally became the proof-reader and his nickname was eagle-eye because nothing got past him. I remember Frank Woodcock and Howie Carruthers working the camera, prepare the sheets for the press. I am wondering if, somewhere, I already posted some similar response!
On the sunny side of the Strait:cool:
wow there are some interesting stories on this thread. Thanks for sharing them.
Is that pirate ship still in the owner's backyard .... does anyone know where you can drive by to view it?
Follow Pine St. from Bowen Rd. Take the first right which is Kerr St. An alley goes right almost immediately, and the pirate ship is on the left side of the alley about 1 house down. The alley will return you to Bowen Rd.
Awesome, thank you Spence...will have to go and check her out!
