While researching his book The Mosaic Village: An Illustrated History of Winnipeg's North End, local author Russ Gourluck interviewed many present and former residents of this famed Winnipeg neighbourhood. He has generously donated the interview recordings to the Winnipeg Public Library in order to make them freely accessible.
The stories revealed in these audio interviews are as diverse as the people who participated in them. Some have become well-known personalities. Some are business owners. Some were born in the North End, while others moved there. All called it their home.
They discuss their school experiences, their favourite games and hangout spots, how they and others perceived the North End and its unique diversity, and how it changed in their lifetimes.
NOTE: The audio quality of these interviews varies.
