LAOL at Hillside July 2017

In July 2017,  Labouring All Our Lives was fortunate to be granted a booth at Hillside Music Festival in Guelph. In this way, we were able to expand awareness of and interest in Guelph's working class and labour history. Below are a few photos, courtesy of Diane,  recording the event.  The material for the display was a combination of Museum and personal items.

If you are in the area, do come and visit us.
