Abstract: This collection of interviews about Vancouver's history takes its name from a focal intersection in Vancouver's downtown eastside, the home of the Carnegie Community Centre and Branch Library. Since 1980, the Carnegie Community Centre Association has been interviewing its patrons as part of an oral history project and twenty of the best interviews are published here. Photographs of the city and of the story-tellers bring it to life.
Anyone interested in further exploration of the experiences in this community may arrange to speak with the principal interviewer through Barbara Pulling at New Star Books.
