Track 1: This portion of the recording pertains to Gail’s school years, her activities, household living arrangements, responsibilities, jobs, toys and games, and friends. 00:00-2:46: Gail describes growing up in South Burnaby, on her parents’ farm on Marine Drive, which her father had purchased from the people he worked for. She talks about attending Riverway West Elementary School, then McPherson Junior High school, and Burnaby South High School. Gail describes the games and activities she participated in at school, both formal and informal. She discusses her first real job as a teenager, as a page at the Burnaby Public Library. 2:46-6:09: Gail recalls her responsibilities at home, and earning money. She talks about her family’s living arrangements. She describes her family, immediate and extended, and her family’s history on the farm. Gail discusses the economic difficulties of farming, and the job her father got when he leased the farm to a tenant. 6:09-10:15: Gail describes her playmates, with whom she played in the nearby bush, and recalls how the time of year and the weather affected their play. She mentions a roller skating rink on Edmonds Street, but notes that such amenities were uncommon then. Gail lists the organized youth activities she participated in: Brownies, C.G.I.T., and Explorers. She discusses the toys and games she played with at home with her sisters. Gail describes her family’s living arrangements, and how the large house included a big rumpus room with a television set. She talks about her family’s closeness with extended family. 10:15-12:13: Gail recalls that the distance between her home and school made it necessary to have lunch at school, and shares how this created a special group of friends. She relates how living near Marine Drive, which was then a highway, affected her. Gail recalls going to Sunday school with her neighbor’s children in her elementary school years, but describes her family as not being very connected to church. She talks about participating in Brownies and Explorers.

Track 2: This portion of the recording pertains to Gail’s organized activities, her best and worst childhood memories, recreation, shopping, her feeling about living in Burnaby and the changes she has observed. 0:00-3:18: Gail continues to talk about Brownies. 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.
