Oral History Collection

Everyone has a story to tell. Oral histories can show how ordinary people live their lives, creating a personal link to the past.

We have an archive comprising over 150 recordings on cassette tape of local people talking about aspects of their life in the district going back to the early 1900s and we use these for exhibitions and research.

We are always glad to hear from people with interesting memories, photos and stories of St Albans.  So please contact us if you would like to contribute, or if you have any enquiries about our oral history collection.
