    Enjoy the historical pictures and info, I personally enjoyed the PG print article on Polish Hill Brereton St.. Memories were activated and I thought about my childhood during the Second World War, as you may know everyone on the home front including children helped in the war effort. We had Victory Gardens ,we collected scrap metals, tin cans toothpaste tubes paper etc. Some kids, me included were Junior Commandos, I can remember picking Milk Weed they supposedly used them for life preservers. I can remember news paper pictures of us Junior Commandos. Might be a thought for a future article on how the populace took part in the war effort. I think this Junior Commando idea started via a comic strip ?

    Ethan,

    Do you have a check box for conducting searches by subject? More information on the parameters of “The Digs” would be very helpful

    Joel,

    The search features at the top and bottom of the site will return just about everything you need. There is also a map found atop the site that breaks topics down geographically.

    What precisely are you looking for?

    Best,

    Ethan
