Canada’s “Growing Pains” were a period of excitement & upheaval. It was a time of intense social and economic pressure that created new conditions for change. This informative, interactive presentation allowed the audience to better enjoy and appreciate Canadian Life during these formative years of our country’s history. Ms. Harris enlightened the residents to the social aspects of the time and the changing conditions of a young, emerging country by referring to her own family’s experiences.
Residents were able to see first-hand a full array of authentic antique clothing, shoes, accessories, pictures, grooming aids, household goods, medicines, toys and children’s wear from that time period, belonging to the individuals profiled.
Presenter Lianne Harris reconstructed, in authentic attire, a one hour snap chat of life typical of the times and of personalities in ways familiar and unfamiliar to the residents of Delmanor Prince Edward. Lives full of uncertainty, disappointment, joy and hope. Like an adventure and challenge it was never easy, but it was definitely worth it!
The Delmanor Prince Edward residents enjoyed learning more about this period of time and sharing stories of times gone by. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful and insightful presentation.
