In this final instalment of Robert Huntís memoirs, we return to the alleys and street corners of St. Johnís in the 1950s and 1960s. Baby boomers coming of age in this growing city often faced difficult and sometimes frightening challenges, including daily threats from bullies and attending school under the oppressive yoke of the Irish Christian Brothers. But life in downtown St. Johnís wasnít all bad.
Together with his childhood friends, Robert Hunt explored the city and came to know first-hand some of its historical riches. With stories of World War I hero Tommy Ricketts, hockey greats Alex and George Faulkner, working with Canadian National Railway employees on the ďNewfie Bullet,Ē and many more, Brazil Street is a treasure for the ages. Experience the lives of these townies and corner boys in the heyday of St. Johnís, the oldest city in North America, and enjoy this unique trip down memory lane.
