The Memory Store: A safe haven for the crown jewels...

The video for this week's the Memory Store was filmed in the stairwell of the Anna Templeton Centre. Executive director Beverly Barbour tells two of her favourite stories about the Anna Templeton Centre building. The first is a story about the building being a possible safe haven for the crown jewels and the second about the building being used by a forensic team.
