Scope and content

Project and donor contributed description follows: "On January 24th, 1963, Kate’s mother, Clara Chan, prepares for Chinese New Year the night before, setting the table and filling red envelopes with money her kids.

Cut to the next day where Stan, Joyce, Linda and Kate, are coming downstairs to receive their red envelopes. Everyone sings around the piano as Joyce plays. Upon further observation Kate’s friend notices that they are singing 'Away in a Manger'.

Clara is a Russian refugee who came to Canada after the war in 1950. Fortunately for Clara the Manitoba law that prohibited white woman from working in Chinese restaurants was repealed in 1948. Her parents met in the Virden Café in 1950."
