Hogan's Alley Residents speak, moderated by the late, great Denis Simpson

Here is an excerpt from an excellent 2009 panel discussion featuring three former residents of Hogan's Alley: Randy Clark, Chic Gibson, and Elwin Xie. It was moderated by Denis Simpson. Simpson died just a few days ago, and will be sorely mourned by so many, including those of us in the Hogan's Alley Memorial Project. He was deeply involved in the movement to maintain the legacy and memory of Hogan's Alley and beyond, and worked with the wonderful people from the Vancouver Moving Theatre to develop East End Blues, a performed history of the neighbourhood.
