This compilation of memories, photographs, and poetry is a tribute to Einar Nordstrom who came to Canada looking for work only to find The Great Depression, poverty, hunger, and injustice towards workers. He became a labour leader devoting his life to defending the values of the working class and to preserving their history. His shop, The Record Centre in Thunder Bay, Ontario, became a safe place for music-loving youth in the 60s and 70s. Without him, Canada would have been a poorer place for both people and song.
