Vernon Daigle moved to Lewiston at 7 years old in 1943 from Fort Kent, ME. His dad was a lumberjack and his mom was a cook, but they moved to Lewiston to work for the BIW. He explains what it was like growing up in Lewiston; his neighborhood, the stores he went to, and everyday life. He eventually shares his job history; going from a cleaner to working in a body shop to becoming a hand sewer at a shoe mill. He ends by sharing his experience working at Billings and how he thinks Lewiston has changed over the years.
