On A Shoestring: The Depression & 1930s in Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah is an oral history project undertaken between January 2000 and October 2001.

72 people were interviewed who had been living in Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah during the 1930s.

The outcome of this project was a rich archive of interviews. From this, Paula Hamilton (Associate Professor of History at University of Technology, Sydney) has written Cracking Awaba: Stories of Mosman and Northern Beaches communities during the Depression.

The On A Shoestring website has been developed to provide information about the project and insight into some of the stories recorded during the project.

A selection from these stories can be listened to online.
