The October 29, 2012 edition of Bob Bratina's Hamilton features a ten-minute interview with Hamilton Public Library archivist Margaret Houghton on the 1956 wholesale conversion of Hamilton's lower city streets from two-way to one-way.
The interview is well worth watching, not only for the information and insight it provides into the city's decision to convert its downtown streets en masse to one-way traffic under the recommendation of US traffic engineer Wilbur Smith, but also for the introduction to the excellent archives at Central Library on the third floor.
