Welcome to the City of Sydney’s Oral History Collection, curated by the City of Sydney’s History Unit. The collection showcases the voices of Sydney people past and present. In these interviews Sydney people talk about their history, their neighbourhoods, their beliefs, their work, their businesses, their relationship with the natural world, and their myriad experiences of daily life in this city. Go to the ‘About’ page for more information about oral history, an introduction to our interviews, copyright notice, privacy issues and terms and conditions of usage.
