Essex Records Office sound archive have uploaded a collection of oral history interviews conducted by The Harwich Society between 2009 and 2014
(Catalogue Reference SA 49/1/2).
These twenty-four interviews are just the first instalment of an ongoing project to record the experiences of current and former residents of Harwich and Dovercourt. As with most collections of oral history interviews, they reveal shared experiences but also how life varied even in one town depending on personal circumstances.
