Mosman’s oral histories now online at www.mosmanvoices.net

Mosman Voices: Oral Histories Online

This is the latest project in Mosman Library’s ongoing commitment to the collection and preservation of Mosman’s history.

We are pleased to announce that Mosman Voices: oral histories online is now live at www.mosmanvoices.net.

This site provides quick and easy access to Mosman Library’s extensive oral history collection which continues to expand since its beginnings in the early 1980s.

Excerpts have been selected from a number of interviews covering a variety of topics and have been placed on the web.

Each excerpt consists of sound and text. It is now possible to listen to recollections of the night the Japanese submarines entered Sydney Harbour; how residents obtained household supplies; the Dairy at Beauty Point; riding billy-carts down Mosman’s treacherous streets; tempting sharks by swimming at Sirius Cove.

We plan to continue to add excerpts with a view to building a wonderful resource on Mosman from the personal viewpoint of those who live or have lived here

This project was made possible by a Library Council of New South Wales Library Development Grant in December 2005.

For any further enquiries, please contact Donna Braye, Local Studies Librarian on 9978 4101/4090.
