Tony Nimis.  Photo courtesy of Rudy Cavaliere.Tony came to Canada a few years after the first World War from Paris, France. He first landed in Quebec before moving to Alberta in 1926. He worked at the mine in Mountain Park by Edson for a few years, and then moved back to Edmonton where he worked in a marble and tile shop for nine years. An old man, who was a friend of his, had family still in Italy. This old man's daughter came over and became Tony's wife. They both love Alberta and do not wish to live elsewhere.

The interview was conducted by Sab Roncucci for the Dante Alighieri Oral History Project in 1973.

This oral history project was initiated by Sabatino Roncucci, a founder of the Dante Alighieri Society, for the purpose of documenting immigration history so that it could be shared not only with the Italian community but also the community at large.
