These are the stories of the people, places, things and moments that make Edmonton what it is. In each 10-minute episode, we take a chapter from Edmonton’s past and discuss how it fits into the city’s story—with contributions from local historians, professors, enthusiasts and more!
Episode 16: City Hall & Friendship Tower
The story behind City Hall’s remarkable bell tower, a gift from broadcast pioneer Dick Rice that regularly sends gleeful tunes out into Churchill Square.
Episode 15: From Barber to Farmer
Toyomatsu Kimura was no farmer! But after discrimination made it hard to run his business in 1920’s Edmonton, that’s what he did—along with other Japanese families. This is their story, with help from farming community resident Chizuko Kimura and researcher Aya Fujiwara.
