Oral History Collection

  • Collection
  • 1972-2016

Digitized versions of old audio tapes, which include various interviews conducted with residents of Bradford West Gwillimbury. They are comprised of various interesting stories on everyday life in Bradford and surrounding areas over the past century.

Accompanying these recordings are written transcripts outlining each conversation in detail. Due to the age of the tapes, the sound quality of some may be a bit poor. These transcripts are provided to facilitate listening and complement the audio recording. All of these transcripts have been compiled into a book, which we have catalogued for anyone interested in reading them in a collected format.
