In Our Own Words: Voices from the Collections
This year Perth & Kinross Archive are launching the In Our Own Words project to catalogue our rich collection of oral histories.
Through the voices of those who lived and worked in Perth & Kinross between the early twentieth and twenty-first centuries we celebrate the unique histories and cultural traditions that shaped the landscape and people of Perth & Kinross.
Thanks to funding from Archives Revealed this collection, unique to our region, will be accessible for the first time, allowing us to develop a richer understanding of the past crafts, industries, agriculture, recreation and home life of Perthshire.
In this exhibition we invite you to listen to a small sample from the Perth & Kinross Sound Archive, a collection of recordings made in the 1980s where rural residents share their memories of living and working on the land.
