Track 5: This portion of the recording pertains to changes to Burnaby since Bob’s childhood. The track begins in mid-sentence and the first comment may relate to a previous topic or one lost in editing, as Bob refers to bitterness and notes that there were jobs for everyone when the Second World War started. He continues to describe his relationship with his Ukrainian neighbors, and how he felt about such discrimination as he experienced. He discusses the entrepreneurial opportunities which existed for children and youth, recalls that everyone had private enterprises to help pay for necessities of life, and notes that most of his classmates went to work full time after finishing elementary school. Bob contrasts the general affluence of the present day with the pervasive poverty of his childhood. He notes that discipline at the time was physical, and that authority was not questioned. He comments on physical changes to Burnaby.

Track 5: This portion of the recording pertains to differences between Ken’s family life and that of others in the community, and changes to Burnaby since he was young. Ken observes that the only difference he noticed was that he had Sundays free of commitments where some others might have church activities. He describes the main change to Burnaby as being its increased urbanization, remembering how he would contrast the quiet, slow-paced Burnaby of his youth to the bustle of Chinatown, where his father did his shopping. He mentions the increased density, the changes to the Metrotown area, and the much larger number of shops. He notes that warehouses were built across from his family’s property, which is still farmland. Ken recalls that he and his wife only looked in Burnaby for a house when they married, thinking Vancouver too busy and commercialized then. He finishes by relating an incident from elementary school, when he saw a UFO hovering over the edge of the school’s property.

She relates her worst childhood memory, but can’t select a best. She describes how her activities were affected by living in the Marine Drive corridor, which was a difficult place to walk or cycle, or even cross the street. Gail mentions that her older sister encountered racial prejudice, but she can’t remember encountering any herself. 3:18-7:58: Gail discusses living in Burnaby, and the changes she has observed in the city. She describes the Kingsway corridor as busier and more congested now, but notes that there are improved opportunities for shopping . Gail recalls that her family did their grocery shopping at the Safeway at Royal Oak Avenue and Rumble St., and went to Woodward’s department store in New Westminster. She relates that although her family occasionally went to Chinatown in Vancouver, and that as a teenager she sometimes went to Vancouver to shop, she went to New Westminster more often, preferring the movie theatres there also. She notes that bus service on Marine Drive was infrequent, which affected her activities. Gail recalls that shopping days and hours were more restricted when she was a child. She describes how her family shopped by car, when her father was available to drive, until her mother began driving them later. 7:58-10:03: Gail shares her favourite things about living in Burnaby. She recalls being married at South Burnaby United Church, where she had gone to Sunday School, but not by a Chinese minister as she doesn’t speak Chinese.

He discusses his extended family and relates how his father was born in Cranbrook because his grandfather, who had come to Canada in the 1880s, was gold mining there at the time. Ken describes the kinds of Chinese associations he remembers in Vancouver, and the services they offered. He recalls the New Year and Spring festivals they hosted. He mentions his family belonging to the Chow association, ‘Chow’ being his mother’s family’s name.
