“My mother and father, Margaret and Roy McDonnell. It looks like they’re walking under the lights of the Orpheum Theatre so they would have been on a night out.
I remember that this year we moved from the little house they built at Granville & 60th Avenue (a new area at the time) to Kerrisdale, across from the Crofton House School. It was great because the school included a lot of property that was all bush. My brother and I had forts and secret trails. I remember picking daffodils for my mom on the road going into the school.”
