Artifacts (youngtime): Guildford (Surrey, BC) Pals and Gangs, 197x

Artifacts (youngtime): with pal Chris Goodman (note Peterbuilt hat) / he’s still awesome

Note: after moving from Lansing, Michigan to Surrey, BC in 1974/5, we lived on 154th St. in Guilford area on a dirt road with a rented house which backed into a whole bunch of forest. I attended Harold Bishop elementary school before moving to Whalley (95 ave.) in middle for Grade 4.

In the nearby woods, my friend Chris Goodman and I found a huge stash of lumber (also note in there was a few burnt out old houses in a field across from us) we salvage things and made large dangerous tree houses. I recall we played wide-games in the forest as well as epic street hockey games at the dead end by a new doctor’s office.

This area was quickly developed with a big new library and a massive mall.  The building still exist though the house is long gone, the roads paved etc. etc.

Artifacts (youngtime): “Guildford Goodguys Gang” (Surrey, BC) Pals, 197x (noting brother Bobby, Gordie…)

This was around the time I did the Pig Express newsletter and wrangled up various gangs of “good kids” for activities and what not. Realizing now this was *important* because there was a lot of dangerous characters around the neighbourhood including the one who shall not be named.
