The boy across the street

I lived a few blocks away from the Aud when it first opened. I remember going to public skating events there on weekends with my cousin who literally lived across the street on Borden Ave. I walked past the building every day for five years on my way to and from elementary school. My most vivid memories of the Auditorium are going with my Dad to watch the Dutchmen Senior A hockey team every week and then in 1958 seeing an NHL exhibition game between the Maple Leafs and the Red Wings. We had rink side seats and I got to see Gordie Howe up close. Loved the hotdogs at the concession stands too. A great building that was part of a memorable childhood.
