Oral history project
Eight members of the Fitzroy History Society began collecting interviews in 2015 under the title, ‘The Life and Times of Fitzroy from the 1950s’.
Together, Marion Glanville, Alison Hart, Meryl Hyde (Deceased), Tony Knox (Photographer), Meg Lee, Mary Lewis, Hilary McPhee, Rosa Simonelli, Marijana Vanevski and Peter Woods produced these audio files, transcripts and photographic portraits for the local history collection of the City of Yarra Library.
Generous grants from the Bendigo Bank, together with assistance and support from the City of Yarra, Arts and Culture, has enabled the Fitzroy Oral History Project webpage to include 5 video interviews, as well as the transcripts and audio files of all the 20+ participants involved.
