Great sites for local history and oral history

If you are interested in postwar history, you can find tons of information online.  Check out these sites for information, photos and memories. Pictures of Coventry is hosted by Coventry’s libraries and information services. It provides old photos of the city. Now Then is a West Yorkshire Archive Service website and is the place to find memories of growing up in West Yorkshire. It has loads of oral history clips. Manchester City Council’s local image collection is a fantastic resource for old photos and pictures of the city of Manchester. If you’re in the north west, check out the North West Sound Archive. Finally, the Oral History Society is a great place to start searching for local oral history collections in your area. Some of these sites also provide some excellent late Christmas gifts because they’ll print and deliver images to your door…
