Attached are two photos from 1940 on 3rd st the main artery for bunker hill in those days. My dad, William Dutch Aurther was responsible for the pictures being taken and I was the four year old in both pictures, hope y'all can connect with some of the people in the two pictures. FYI, We lived in Princess Courts @ 316 West Hope street during those times and until 1946 when my dad passed away from TB, he smoke and drank to much, but as a local horse racing bookie working for the underworld you did all your work in the local bars.

Hello Bill,

Thanks for sending along the photos. I'd like to hear some more about those days.

I wonder how many people you knew back then are still around, and where might they be?

I'll put something on my Bunker Hill page soon.

Talk to you soon.

Jim Dawson

Hi Bill!

Still out there?  I'd like to talk to you about these pictures and your time on Bunker Hill.

And here's Nathan's fascinating blog post based on his conversations with Bunker Hill's own Bill Aurther:

Thanks, Bill and Nathan, for the time travel trip!

cheers,
